These are delicious, not hard to make, and always turn out wonderful... you can use blueberry or apple pie filling instead of the cherry, but I find that cherry is the best!

Wonderful little cakes. The cherry filling kind of bakes in with the topping crumble. I will try this with other pie filling too, and I was thinking that mabey this would work baking it in just one tart shell? I'll make this again. Thank you!
