Pear Crisps with Hoosier Hill Farm Dried Tart Cherries
1 cup Hoosier Hill Farm Dried Tart Cherries
Water or fruity red wine, such as a Zinfandel, to cover
8 ripe pears, (about 2 1/4 pounds), peeled, cored, and sliced (5 cups)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon Hoosier Hill Farm Almond Meal
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon Hoosier Hill Farm Ground Nutmeg
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
In a small saucepan, combine the cherries with enough water or wine (or a combination) to cover them by 2 inches.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, then turn off the heat and let cool. Let the cherries soak overnight
in the refrigerator, or for at least 8 hours, until they are plump and soft. Drain the cherries, reserving the
juices. In a large bowl, combine the pears, drained cherries, and 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar and toss well.
Mix in 1/2 of the cherry soaking liquid, or whatever cherry soaking liquid is left plus enough water to make 1/2
cup. Let the mixture stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, whisk together the
remaining 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, the flour, almonds, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Slowly drizzle in
the butter and stir with a fork until the mixture is crumbly and all the flour is incorporated. Do not allow the
mixture to come together in a ball. Break up any large crumbs with your fingers. The crumbs should be smaller than
1 inch in size (otherwise they won't cook all the way through).Spoon the fruit into eight 8-ounce ramekins and
place them on a baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle the crumbs on top of the fruit. Bake the crisps until the filling
is bubbling and the topping is browned, about 40 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
