Bake up individual cherry crumbles for a delicious dessert any time of year. (Psst, but particularly fun at Valentine’s Day.)
I think February just cries for cherries. If it’s not the Valentines Day red, then it’s George Washington’s birthday that rallies the cry for cherries. Not to mention the winter blues.
While I am not living in the Polar Vortex, I’m experiencing it vicariously through the rest of you, and man, I bet we can all do with something hot, sweet, and rife with the flavors of summer to enjoy these days.
At Costco this week I found a bag of TART organic cherries in the frozen section. I think the clouds might have parted to the sounds of angels singing. It is practically impossible to find tart cherries in my neck of the woods. I was thrilled to grab the bag and may need to go back for more!
I baked up our favorite version of Cherry Crumble this weekend. And I did it in a so-cute, pleases-all-the-kids, kind of way: in personal ramekins.
Baking dessert in personal sizes is so much fun! Plus, it saves a dish to wash. Double win.
I tossed the cherries with sugar, cornstarch, and spices and spooned it into 8 small baking dishes. Then I whizzed up a streusel top made of butter, whole wheat pastry flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and rolled oats. Don’t worry about piling it high; it all sinks a bit, leaving room for ice cream or whipped cream if you have it.
We didn’t. And we didn’t care. Ooh. I think it’s time to make it again.
This dessert is perfect for Valentine’s Day, President’s Day, George Washington’s birthday, or your mom’s uncle’s cousin’s anniversary. Basically, if the day ends in Y, you’re good to go.
