Is this a cake? Or a pie? I wish this was my own Nonna's recipe, but it is my friend Rita's Nonna who came up with this wonderful and easy dessert. Try blueberries or cherries. Then have me over for a bite!

Ingredients

3 c
flour
1/2 c
sugar, white
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
salt
1 c
butter
1
egg
1 tsp
vanilla
1/2 c
milk
2 can(s)
pie filling
1/2 tsp
almond extract (or other flavor of choice)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Blend flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (like making pie crust)
2
In a small bowl mix the egg, milk and vanilla. Add it to the flour mixture and blend, using hands to form it into a ball, soft and a little sticky.
3
Press 3/4 of the dough into the bottom of a 10 x 15 jelly roll pan or rimmed baking sheet. (or once I used 2 8 x 8 pans.)
4
Add the flavoring to the fruit filling (cherry, blueberry, etc.) and spread over the crust. Drop the rest of the crumb dough in bits over the top of the pie.
5
Bake in a 350 oven for 25-30 minutes or longer for stone or insulated pans until golden. Serve up! Maybe some whipped cream on top?
