I saw this recipe on a cooking show and came up with my own version. When the enticing aroma of this down-home dessert drifts around the house, it's hard not to take a peek inside the slow cooker. For a decadent treat, top servings off with vanilla ice cream. —Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

"The recipe sounded great until I opened it on the website. I try to stay away from mixes used in recipes and canned pie filling so I can control sugar content and ingredients in boxed mixes. Would love to find a recipe that started from scratch. Takes longer, but I know what I'm eating."

"Very easy to make and hubby and I love it ...with or without ice cream. Also delicious cold...Before dinner I made this with peaches this time instead of the hour to go and I'll find out if i like it as much. If you like Cherry will love this desert...and the crumbles are very good!!"

"It was easy and good, but it was also overly sweet. My family and our guests felt like it needed a little tartness. I think I might make it again but would add some lemon juice/zest? Possibly some dried sour cherries?"
