  • 250 g/ 8.8 oz/ 1 cup soft unsalted butter
  • 150 g/ 5.3 oz/ ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 375 g/ 13.2 oz/ 3 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • about 350 g/ 12.3 oz sweet cherries Note 1
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • whipped cream strained yogurt or crème fraiche to serve, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Mix together the flour and the salt, add them to the butter mixture, mix with a spoon first and then with your hands to form the crumbs.
  • You can use a food processor as well: mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy, add the dry ingredients and pulse a few times until the dough turns into crumbs.
  • Press ¾ of the crumb dough in the pie dish (of about 23 cm/ 9 inches diameter), pressing up the sides of the dish as well. Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden.
  • While the crumb crust is in the oven, pit and halve the cherries. Mix them with sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the crust from the oven. Add the cherries on top in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining dough on top to form a crumble topping. Bake for further 20-25 minutes until the crumble topping is nicely browned.
  • Let cool down in the form for about 20 minutes before transferring it to a platter. Or serve directly from the baking dish as suggested above.



Use as many cherries as needed to have a rather thick layer of in the pie form, it is OK if you have a bit more or less than the required quantity.
