  • 1 recipe Chocolate Whole-Wheat Pie Dough
  • 1/2 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup whole almonds

Make It

1. On a lightly floured surface roll the pie dough into a 12-inch circle. Line a 9-inch fluted pie plate with the pastry, fluting edge as desired. Cover and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. For crumble, place oats in a food processor. Cover and process until finely ground. Add the flour, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, cinnamon, and almonds. Cover and process until almonds are coarsely ground.

3. Transfer mixture to a medium bowl and add the melted butter; stir with a fork until combined.

4. To make cherry filling, in a large bowl stir together the sugar, cornstarch, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Add the cherries and almond extract and stir to combine.

5. Spoon cherry mixture into pastry-lined pie plate and sprinkle with almond mixture.

6. Bake about 65 minutes or until bubbly in the center, covering loosely with foil after 30 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.


  • To partially thaw cherries, place in a large microwave-safe bowl. Cover with waxed paper and microwave on 100% power (high) for 2 minutes, stirring once.
