almond extract
Fruit Filling:
4 cups Bing cherries, pitted
3/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon almond extract

Crumble Topping:
4 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Roughly chop Bing cherries (if using food processor, pulse briefly). Combine cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and almond extract in medium saucepan. Stir to blend and bring to simmer over medium heat; reduce heat and continue simmering for approximately ten minutes, stirring frequently. Filling is thick enough when liquid coats the back of a spoon.
2. Combine topping ingredients until mixture resembles very coarse sand. Sprinkle over fruit filling.
3. Bake in ramekins, pie dish, or casserole dish for 20-30 minutes at 375 F, until topping is browned and filling is bubbly.
