  • 1 cup (3oz/85g) rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup (3 ½ oz/94g) flour
  • ½ cup (3oz/85g) brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (4oz/115g) butter, softened and diced
  • 5 cups (25oz/710g) pitted cherries
  • 1 cup (8oz/225g) sugar
  • 2 small granny smith apples, peeled and grated
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a bowl, make the topping: combine oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and butter until well combined and crumbly looking.
  3. In an ovensafe skillet over medium heat, combine cherries, sugar, apples, cornstarch and salt.
  4. Cook until mixture bubbles and thickens, about 5 or 6 minutes. Stir in almond extract.
  5. Remove from heat, sprinkle topping over the cherries and place in the oven.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
