"There was no crisp to it. It was all just goo. All the topping sank to the bottom."

"Really enjoyed this. It was easy, things used I always have in my pantry AND versatile. I used blueberry pie filling a few days after I used the cherry. The second time I made it I used half butter, half margarine to see what would happen. All that happened was we ate it all and no one noticed the margarine."

"So simple and tasty the topping has a nice crunch! I didn't have the pie filling so I substituted with 2 -15 ounce pitted dark cherries drained. Enjoyed next to

scoop of vanilla ice cream. Will definitely make again soon."

"This was very good and easy to make, without using a mix! I will definitely make it again, and will try other pie fillings. Needs a photo to show how good it looks!"
