Outstanding! I made these alongside chocolate cupcakes for dessert, and these were the hands down favourite! Extremely easy and a nice light dessert. Can't wait to make these again, possibly an all-lemon version next time :)

Easy to make and really clear instructions which was so important because I was on unfamiliar territory making something like this in the microwave. The only changes I made were to reduce the sugar (I used brown) to one tablespoon and therefore to increase the crumbs by a tablespoon, and to use a well-drained can of whole black cherries instead of the cherry pie filling. I cooked these in microwave-safe ramekins. They looked and tasted fabulous! Thanks for sharing another wonderful recipe.

I would have never thought that Lemon and Cherry would go together but after trying this recipe i am a believer. It was yummy and will try it again. Thanks.
