Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter (3 T.) in the bottom of a 9.5 " pie dish.
Place 2 cups of pitted dark cherries in the bottom of the dish, sprinkle with 1/2 c. Slivered almonds.
In a blender combine 1 c. milk ( almond or coconut milks work well), 3 eggs, 1 t. Vanilla, 1/2 c. flour (gluten free if desired), dash of salt, 1/2 c. sugar.
Pour over cherries and almonds in the dish.
Bake for about 1 hour...checking after 45 minutes.....or so.
This is a lovely baked custard dish....
It is dense and smooth, not light and airy.
Delicious warm or chilled, even with whipped cream, too!
The latest apron, from a Kwik Sew pattern. I love how the straps cross in the back, no annoying ties around the neck!
