Peach & Cherry Al Forno
By Alex Levin, Pastry Chef, Osteria Morini

1 ¼ pounds Fresh Cherries
¾ pound Yellow Peaches
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1 tbs Lemon Juice
1/3 cup + 1 tbs. AP Flour
Oat Streusel (see below)

Prep fruit
a. Using a cherry pitter, pit the cherries and reserve in a bowl.
b. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place the peaches in the boiling water for 20 seconds, remove the peaches from the pot, cool under cold water in the sink, and push off the skins. Cut the peaches into 1/8ths. Mix with cherries.
Combine all other ingredients with fruit. Mix gently with a spatula until the fruit absorbs the other ingredients.
Place filling into two 5 ½ by 1" circular terra cotta baking dishes.
Cover the fruit with Oat Streusel, pushing the streusel down onto the fruit.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes or until the topping is light brown and the juices from the fruit are bubbling slightly on the side.
Serve warm with choice of gelato.

Variations:
Substitute blueberries for cherries; peaches with no other fruit (2 pounds total); baking apples (2 pounds total) + 1/8 tsp. cinnamon.
Adjust the amount of streusel topping to reduce carbohydrates and sugar. The basic amount is 2 parts fruit to 1 part streusel topping, but this can be adjusted based on preference.

Oat Streusel
2 ¼ cups AP Flour
1 ½ cups Light Brown Sugar
1 tsp Fine Sea Salt
2 sticks Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
2 tsp Cinnamon
2 cups Oats
Using a mixer with the paddle attachment, mix all ingredients except for the Oats until homogenous.
Scrape the bowl down, add the oats and mix until all combined.
Break apart the streusel onto a sheet tray into small chunks, freeze, store in an airtight container for later use or use right away.
