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.
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
- Mix together brown sugar, flour, and salt. Cut in butter until it looks like coarse crumbs. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
- Place cherries in the bottom of four 4 oz. ramekins and sprinkle with crumble.
- Bake at 425* for 15 minutes.
