Cherry Crisp

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.

One day, I wanted to use up a leftover can of cherry pie filling that I had in the refrigerator. I added some diced rhubarb, then used a cobbler topping I liked. It turned into a favorite—fast! After many years of farming, my husband and I are now enjoying a new life in our new house, built on a lake.

The inspiration for me to find this recipe was my husband. He loves cheesecake but was tired of the dry types. Up here, all the wilderness we could ask for is right outside our back door—everything from wolves to caribou!

Cherry Chewbilees makes a good dish to carry to potlucks and parties. It's a hit for me at home, too—my husband rates it as one of his favorite desserts. We both love the country, and the small town we live in has a very rural-sounding nickname...it's know as the "Forestry Capital of the South"!

My great-aunt in Pennsylvania's a great country cook, and she gave this recipe to me. It's one of my husband's favorites. I like it, too—it's easier than two-crust pies, plus I've used both fresh and frozen cherries with good results.

When I received a 20-lb. box of cherries as a gift one time, I decided to experiment with them—and this turned out to be the successful outcome! I enter the Domestic Science Division of our annual Fall Fair each year. At a recent one, three recipes I'd found in Country Woman netted me ribbons.
