We picked 25 pounds of Queen Anne and Bing cherries at an orchard yesterday. We enjoyed this recipe today. I tripled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13. I used the crisp topping (only doubled, not tripled) from Edna's Apple Crumble (Aka. Apple Crisp) since I didn't have any granola on hand. It was an excellent dessert that I will make again.

So very good! We had a ton of cherries to be used up. I doubled it and used a 9X13 pan. Also, did not have granola, so used oats for the topping. Everyone loved this, with vanilla ice cream on top or some whipped cream. Ty for posting Jess! : )

This was THE best crisp I have made yet. I am a Chef...(more savory than sweet, so my sweets rarely turn out!) I have had many run-ins with crisps & cobblers...they're either too gummy from the starch, too runny from lack of or they just don't turn out....THIS WAS HEAVEN!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! What a great addition to my (small) dessert repertoire! FIVE STARS! Well deserved!

This was soooo easy and super great tasting! Thanks for sharing! We had gone on vacation to Traverse City, MI and picked some sweet cherries. I just couldn't believe that I could make a cherry crisp from Sweet Cherries and not the sour cherries. It turned out awesome!

This was really good. I doubled the recipe and made it in a glass 9x13 pan for a cookout. I was looking for a recipe to use a bunch of cherries I had bought at the market and then left in the refrig forgotten for a few days, this one really hit the spot. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!.

Delicious. I'm not even the biggest fan of cherries, but this dessert was perfection. I made the recipe exactly as stated--and glad I did, because I wouldn't change a thing about it. Don't be afraid to use the almond extract. It's just enough that it never overpowers the cherries. The granola topping gave it a nice crunch.

Just one word: WOW! This was so yummy! I still cant believe how easy and fast it was to put together. When you bite into it you think it must have taken ages to prepare. The flavour of the cherries with the granola and the cinnamon is just fab! It is so crunchy yet so moist and the sweetness is just right! I just made two minor changes: Left out nutmeg and almond extract because of personal preference. But other than that stuck to the recipe. What a winning recipe! Thank you so much for sharing, Jess! P.S. I love this so much Ill try it out with different other fruits as well(thinking of apple, rhubarb, berries). Made for PRMR February 2009

Delicious! This was so good and easy, with enticing aromas. I pitted 3-4 cups of fresh cherries earlier in the day and DD and DD'sBFF got into them, leaving me a mere 2 cups. So I added 2 pears and an apple to the fruit mix and WOW! Yum. DD, DD'sBFF, DH and I cleaned out the dish after dinner. I served it with Vanilla Bean ice cream on top. The only thing I would change next time is to add more almond flavor because I love that flavor. Thanks so much for sharing!

This recipe is super easy and yummy, but I did make a few changes for my own convenience and preferences: I doubled the crumble topping, and I used quick oats instead of granola, and I used pure maple syrup instead of sugar. I'm sure the original recipe is just as yummy.

Thank you for a delicious and easily made cherry crisp recipe. Was looking for a less involved use than cherry pie for the cherries we picked yesterday. Since the cherries I used were sweet, I reduced the sugar to 2 TB. Also, didn't have any lemons on hand, so I used lime juice instead and it turned out great!<br/><br/>I recommend this recipe to anyone wanting a tasty cherry treat.<br/><br/>Cherry pie tomorrow. Today, this wonderful cherry crisp!
