Gluten Free Cherry Almond Crisp

I love organic cherries but they are expensive, here is a way to make a delicious fresh cherry dessert without breaking the bank! Pears are inexpensive and take on the flavor of the cherries as they cook down.

Ingredients:

Filling-

20 Organic Cherries (pitted and halved)
3-4 Large Organic Pears (chopped)

1 Vanilla Bean (split and cut in half)
1 tsp almond extract
1/4 cup organic cane sugar
3/4 cup water

Topping-

1.5 cups gluten free oats
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 cup of flour
1/2 brown sugar
3/4 grass fed butter (softened)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all of the filling ingredients in a medium sauce pan and cook over low/med heat stirring occasionally until thick.

While filling is cooking down, mix all of the topping ingredients in a bowl. It should be slightly sticky but crumble easily by hand.

Remove and discard vanilla bean from filling mixture. Pour into a small/medium baker or glass Pyrex dish. Crumble topping over the top of cherry filling and bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30 mins or until crust is crunchy.
