Wow Susan, this sounds absolutely fabulous.  I will be making this one for sure.  The combination of cherries and almonds and coconut is just to much to resist. Don't tell anyone but I may add more almonds and a bit less coconut then again I just may do it "right" the first time then "play" with the recipe.
Thank you for posting this one.

This one is so unbelievably easy and so good.
This is one you will be tempted to hold off making until the fall but try it now.  The few times I have made this I have had people guess what type of pie it is and I always get Cherry.  No one has ever guessed the true ingredient.

Cranberry Streusel Pie
1 pound of fresh cranberries.  They can be frozen ones as well.
3/4 Cup white sugar
1/4 Cup flour
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup walnuts
1/4 Cup flour
1 tsp shortening or butter
1 9 inch pie crust, home made or the prepared type.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Smash berries.  Stir in white sugar and 1/4 cup flour.
Pour berries into pie crust.
Chop walnuts into pieces.  With a pastry blender or fork stir in brown sugar, remaining flour and shortening.
Mixture should be crumbly.  Sprinkle over top of pie.
Bake for 45 minutes.
You may have to cover edge of  crust with foil if it starts to get over browned.

I have also made this using brown sugar in both the filling as well as the streusel topping very good results as I think the brown sugar has a bit more flavor I did cut back on it a bit It was more loose pack rather than a firm pack on the measurement.
All I can say is don't wait until fall to make this.

 FRUIT CRISP:  I made it with canned sour cherries today,You could use any berry or fruit. PRE-HEAT OVEN TO 375 FOR THE FILLING: In a bowl mix together 4 cups of sour cherries pitted or other fruit of choice,use canned, frozen or fresh,1 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour set aside :TOPPING  1 1/2 Cups flour,1 Cup brown sugar,1 Cup old fashioned rolled oats , 2 Sticks butter.IN a bowl mix together the flour,brown sugar and oats cut in butter until crumbly.Pour fruit mixture into a 9x13 baking dish,crumble the topping on evenly and bake for40-50 minutes or until topping is a golden brown.Serve warm good alone ,even better with ice cream.

I toss 1 or 2 big bags in the freezer.  I use them in my Cranberry Almond Pound Cake and the pie but I add them to stuffing for chicken, turkey and pork.  I have been known to toss a hand full into my chicken soup as well. (I heat up a can for myself for dinner once in a while and the cranberries sort of "freshen" the flavor.)
I also like them in apple pie and apple crisp.  It cuts the sweetness.  And they are healthy for you!
