    These were absolutely delicious. I ate 2 when they came out of the oven. The base had a good, firm texture. I processed the cherries in my food processor, then heated according to direction and it only took about 10 minutes for the cherry mixture to thicken and bubble, even on a low temperature. The topping was more crumbly than the bottom, but it wasn't "packed" onto the cherry layer. The almond flavoring just added an extra 'umph' to the cherries making this an all around GREAT dish IMO. Girlie, I'm holding YOU responsible for the 5 lbs. I'm going to gain eating a whole pan of these!!! GREAT RECIPE....One you will use over and over again!!!
