TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 cans (21 ounces each) cherry pie filling
  • 3 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb, thawed
  • ALMOND TOPPING:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, cornstarch and allspice. Fold in pie filling and rhubarb.
  • 2. Transfer to an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until rhubarb is tender.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder and salt; stir in the cream and extract just until a soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls over cherry mixture; sprinkle with almonds and remaining sugar.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, for 30-35 minutes or until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Serve warm. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.
