Fresh Cherry Crumble

Use chopped walnuts or pecans in the delicious buttery brown sugar topping. This is a great way to enjoy fresh sweet cherries.


  • 4 cups fresh pitted cherries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ***Topping***
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans


Heat oven to 375°. Lightly spray 4 7- to 8-ounce ramekins or 5 to 6 5- or 6-ounces ramekins or custard cups with baking spray or lightly butter the bottoms and sides.

In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries, water, 3/4 cup sugar, and 2 1/2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Stir to blend and put the pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

Divide cherry mixture among 4 7- or 8-ounce ramekins (or 5 to 6 smaller ramekins or custard cups).

Combine topping ingredients and, using fingers, sprinkle evenly over each filled ramekin.

Put ramekins in the ove with a sheet of foil or baking sheet on the rack below to catch drips. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned and bubbly.

Serves 4 to 6.

I had some fresh cherries just sitting in the fridge and was about to toss them and then realized I need to quit being so wasteful. So I did a google search on some recipes and stumbled onto this one. I was immediately excited when I saw that I literally had every ingredient this recipe called for. I only had 2 ramekins so my husband and I ate the first 2 and then made another 2 for dessert after dinner. This is an absolute fabulous dessert! My husband said it brought back memories as a kid of these pie desserts his mom would buy him at the store that were individually wrapped. Today he asked if I would make this again and again I'm excited that other than the cherries I have everything needed! This is a wonderful, tasteful dish!
