Chocolate-Cherry Crisp

We always raid the cherry trees after Gabe's birthday party. This year was no different!

As soon as we got home, Dylan pulled out his cherry pitter and pitted 4 C of cherries for dessert.

Then we just needed to decide what to make.

Cherry pie was an obvious choice as was Clafoutis. Then I remembered a Croatian Cherry Cake with Maraschino Liqueur. I also considered some Cherry Hand Pies.

In the end, I decided to make a Chocolate-Cherry Crisp. I still have more cherries, so I guess I'll get to make something else this week.



4 C fresh, pitted cherries
2 T flour
1/2 C dark chocolate chips

Crisp
6 T butter
1 C flour
1/3 C organic, granulated sugar
1/4 C ground almonds
1/2 t ground cardamom


Mix the cherries and flour together until the cherries are well-covered. Pour them into a pie dish. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the cherries. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix all of the crisp ingredients together with a pastry cutter until combined and crumbly. Top the fruit with the crumble and bake until the filling is bubbling and the crisp beginning to brown. It might take 50-55 minutes. Serve immediately, or while still warm.
