Robin Wolf


1 stick melted butter or margarine
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1 c. sugar
1 small can carnation evaporated milk
lemon or orange peel
1-2 cans of sour cherries or 2 cups blueberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/2 stick butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla

Using the food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and peel. Slowly add egg, milk and melted butter. When all is well mixed, place in well greased baking dish.
If using sour cherries, drain and add a little sugar and flour. If using blueberries, add a little flour. Put fruit on top of first mixture.
Combine ingredients in processor. Pulse until crumbs form and then place on top of fruit. Topping may be doubled if so desired.
Bake at 375 (depending on oven, I bake at 360) for 45 minutes.
