Cherry Crumble (for two)

This recipe was a perfect way to use cherries from my co-op order this month. It was done in under a half hour and absolutely delicious. My rating: 5 out of 5.

Cherry Crumble (for two)

1 1/2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp water
1 tsp corn starch

1/3 cup flour
1 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp brown sugar
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon
2 1/2 Tbsp butter, melted

In a small saucepan on medium heat, cook cherries, sugar, water, and corn starch until cherries are softened and mixture thickens--about five minutes.

Combine flour, sugars, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Slowly add melted butter and stir with a fork to form the crumble topping.

Spray a small glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour in cherries. Place crumble on top and lightly press it down into the cherries.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes or until top turns light brown.
