Cherry Crisp Recipe

Cherry Crisp Recipe

The very first time that I made Cherry Crisp, my brother happened to be visiting. He is an ice cream lover—but he passed up the scoops of vanilla that he tops most desserts with so he could taste the cherries better! Wheat, soybeans and milo are the main crops on our farm. We also have three small cherry trees. I apportion all of that harvest for this recipe. My husband's is the manager of a coop. I work part-time as a church secretary...teach piano in our home...and enjoy making clothes for myself and our 3-year-old daughter. Cross-stitch is one of my favorite hobbies.

"Best ever recipe for cherry crisp! I did add 1 tsp. of almond flavoring because I love the combination of cherry and almond. Be sure to grease the pan well."

"I have been looking for a great cherry crisp recipe, as my old one was just "so-so". This is IT :) My family fights over the topping on cherry crisp - but this recipe provides a generous topping - plenty for everyone! DELICIOUS."

"Absolutely wonderful! Cut the sugar in the crust to 3/4 c and left it in the oven for 3 min longer before filling. Crunchy and not too sweet!"

"this dessert was awful, way too sweet and sticky, and the topping didn't turn out crispy at all. Very disappointing, just a waste of cherries."
