almond extract (or other flavor of choice)
1Blend flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (like making pie crust)
2In 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.
3Press 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.)
4Add 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.
5Bake 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?
