Cherry Crisp (From Cooking Light)

Wonderful dessert packed with fresh sweet cherries. Just the right amount of sweetness with a yummy crunchy topping. I took this out of the oven and went into another room. When I came back, my picky 8 year-old had eaten more than half! All I had was salted butter, so I omitted the salt in the filling and topping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients for filling in a large bowl. Spoon into an 11x7 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle evenly over cherry mixture.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is crisp. Let stand 5 minutes. Serve warm.

This was very good. I had cherries that I wanted to use up so I made half of the recipe. I especially liked the topping. Thanks, Longhorn Mama!
