Sour Cherry Crisp

Sour Cherry Crisp

It is G's birthday this week. I asked him what he wanted me to bake him for his birthday. I totally expected him to ask for something chocolate but he asked for a fruit cobbler. I was somewhat surprised. He said that chocolate cake is often too heavy and too much to eat. A cake or pie can last for weeks in this house. I try to cut most recipes in half so it will serve the two of us for two days but it can be hard.

We have a great source for frozen local fruit - Remlinger Farms. I have purchased both their frozen berry pies which are excellent and the bagged fruit. They are a great source for sour pie cherries. I priced them at the farmer's market last July and they were running $10 per pound. Yozza! I can get a three pound bag of pitted frozen cherries from Remlinger for between $13-$15. It will make two pies or a couple of small cobblers. I also love their frozen peaches.

I had some of their frozen cherries in the freezer so I made a Sour Cherry Crisp from Cupcake Muffin Blog. I have made it several times and I really love the addition of the almond meal in the topping. Almonds and cherries are perfect partners. It is also a nice dessert to make any time of the year if you have access to pie cherries. Click over to her blog and check it out.

This looks delicious. Happy Bday to G!

I had a sour cherry crisp in Perth this past weekend and it didn't look anything like yours! I'll have to give this one a try to make up for the disappointment.

Happy birthday wishes to G. You make such a nice couple. The cobbler looks delicious. What a great idea instead of cake. I want to make this.

Belated Happy Birthday to G. This looks sooooo yummy!!
