We thoroughly enjoyed this quick and easy Cherry Crisp. After I microwaved it, I also added some thinly sliced butter on top of the dish and microwaved to for about 2 minutes. It turned out perfect and can't wait to make this lovely dish again....especially for company. It looks like you spent a lot of time on it when in fact, it couldn't be any easier. Thanks so much for sharing, Whatcha Cookin', Mom?
This was a very refreshing dessert that took absolutely no effort/time at all. I did have to add about a half-tablespoon more of cold butter because the topping did not set up well (still floury) so I just finely sliced it over areas of the crisp and put it back in the microwave for another 2 minutes to get it to set. All in all a very nice effortless dessert. Made for Beverage Tag Jan'08
