Sour Cream Cherry Streusel Pie

(Tastes & Looks Better than the picture!)

I changed a few things for convenience... and with it being a day before Thanksgiving some ingredients had already been taken from the shelves. However, it turned out beautifully and tasted wonderfully.  I made this for the office, but I will make it again soon, and this time I will use white chocolate chips as my family are not big chocolate fans.


1 Can of Cherry Pie Filling
1/2 Cup of Sour Cream
1 Pie Crust - you can make your own or buy it.

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the cherry filling and sour cream. Should look neon pink. I really wish I had a picture of it.
Place pie crust into baking dish (if you actually made yours, well there are instructions for that).
Then pour the filling into the uncooked crust.

I baked mine for 15 minutes without the streusel because my oven is wacky and would have burned the streusel before even getting to the pie. (So in real oven terms you're looking at 20-25 minutes).

While the filling is baking put all of the streusel ingredients together. I ended up just cutting my butter with a knife into the topping and then with my hands combining it all together.

When the filling had baked I took it out and covered it in the streusel.  Then I put it all back into the oven and baked it for another 15 minutes (again, if you're oven is normal 20-25 minutes).

It really was delicious. I can't wait to make it again.

As for the song... I just couldn't resist:

Busy Body

As some might have noticed I've been a little MIA lately.  I took an unannounced break from blogging while I focused on different perusals, like Pinterest. Ha! Except I have been on pinterest a little too much for saying I'm a casual visitor.

Blessings have been abounding in my life. I read posts from myself this time last year and to say that God has more than abundantly blessed me would be an understatement.  Just keep leaning on him if your season right now isn't exactly what you had hoped for.

To make this easy I've compiled a list of things that have changed:

  1. I got a new car:
It was exactly what I wanted.

They even ended up having to give me a great amount on the trade-in of my much beloved yellow mustang.  The best part was I did it all by myself. No parents.

I really am starting my thirties out much more differently than I did my twenties, which I am more than grateful for. I know this is going to be a great decade for me. I can't wait to see what else happens.

As for other things... no... that might be about it actually... not to worry though I have lots of stuff coming up.  I've been baking up a storm, and on Friday I'm chopping off all my hair and donating it to Locks of Love.

In the meantime I have this gem:
