Graham-Almond Cherry Pie

This recipe is definitive proof that I have way too much time on my hands. Even though I have cookbooks to review for Random House and bakery orders to fill (not to mention finishing the last chapter of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!) my mind never ceases creating uses for different ingredients and flavour combinations. I have yet to try out this creation, though I will be sure to do so ASAP (as soon as I find some willing taste testers!). If you get a chance to try it before I do, please leave a comment or e-mail me to let me know how it went! That goes for all my recipe posts, suggestions, criticisms and praises are always welcome!

1 ½ c graham cracker crumbs (GF Option here)

2 tbsp almond meal (flour)
2 tbsp graham cracker crumbs

And thanks for giving us your drool-worthy blog!

I'll be posting a new blog or bust soon (I like your idea for it!!) I've just been very lazy lately. I think I'm going to make the next event last two months maybe (you can post as many as you like!)

How'd you like the ending of Harry Potter? I'm so sad it's over!
