Cherry-Cream Crumble Pie

I created this yummy recipe for a cherry pie contest at the San Diego County Fair when i was first married in 1984. It won the blue ribbon. I love entering contests and am a six-time Pillsbury Bake-Off finalist. —Marian Hollingsworth, La Mesa, California

    Great pie! I used frozen cherries from my tree. About 3 cups and 2/3 c. sugar. I used at least 1 tsp of almond extract and an extra Tbs of flour because I included cherry juices. I also used slivered almonds not pecans in topping. I will for sure make it again!!!

    I made this pie for Thanksgiving, and it was the family favorite! I used pitted pie cherries that I had canned (two jars).
