This cherry almond crisp tastes great straight out of the oven. It is even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Served in ramekins, everyone gets their own little portion.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Combine the cherries, sugar, almond extract and cornstarch in a large bowl.
  3. Spray 4 ramekins with non-stick spray. Divide cherry mixture evenly between the ramekins.
