Secret Recipe Club: Sweet Cherry Crumble for Four

It's time for yet another Secret Recipe Club reveal day. For those of you wondering, Secret Recipe Club is a group of a couple hundred food bloggers separated into 4 groups. Each month, each blogger gets assigned to a different blog in the group secretly and they make a recipe or two for reveal day. Each group posts on a different Monday - today is Group D's day to reveal what blogs we had and what we made.

This month I was paired with one of Group D's newer members, Melissa of Brooklyn Locavore. Melissa is a marketing professional living with her husband and turtle in Brooklyn, NY. I love that she chooses local over organic. I definitely agree with her perspective on that! I have been going savory the last few months and decided it was time to try a little sweet. Unfortunately, it's not really cherry season here in America anymore - from what I hear that is a very short season and it's usually June. The produce here in upstate New York isn't the best either unless you're buying sweet corn - so I adapted my chosen recipe of Sweet Cherry Crumble for Two.
Sweet Cherry Crumble for Four | #SecretRecipeClub reveal day with this divine #dessert from Brooklyn Locavore |

I used canned cherry pie filling instead of making my own cherry mixture with fresh, pitted cherries. I also used 7 oz. ramekins and separated the cherries into 4 portions. They turned out so well and since Nick is deployed still...I helped myself to what would have been his dessert :)

What you need:
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, cold
  • 1 jar cherry pie filling
  1. Mix together brown sugar, flour, and salt. Cut in butter until it looks like coarse crumbs. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  2. Place cherries in the bottom of four 4 oz. ramekins and sprinkle with crumble.
  3. Bake at 425* for 15 minutes.
