- 2 cups fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
- 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- In a saucepan, combine the cherries, lemon juice, and granulated sugar. Cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens, then remove from heat and let it cool.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a baking pan.
- In a bowl, mix together the all-purpose flour, brown sugar, almond flour, and salt. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Take half of the crumb mixture and press it evenly into the bottom of the prepared baking pan to form the crust.
- Bake the crust in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until it’s lightly golden.
- Remove the crust from the oven and spread the cherry filling over it.
- Add almond extract to the remaining crumb mixture and sprinkle it evenly over the cherry layer.
- Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.
- Allow the Cherry Almond Crumble Bars to cool completely before cutting into squares.
