Cherry Crisp

Don't forget to join Gnee of Singing With Birds and me for our End of Summer BlogBBQ!

I've never baked much with cherries. Last summer I purchased a few cherries from the Farmer's Market and made this. I used an opened up paper clip as my cherry pitter. While it worked okay, I wanted a real cherry pitter. I bought this one. If you have a lot of cherries to pit, get this one, it's awesome!

I was looking forward to making a cold soup with those cherries. When Tim heard that, in a very disappointed voice he said he was hoping I would make a dessert. Since I am challenged, when it comes to pie crusts, I decided to make a crisp.

Cherry Crisp

4 cups pitted sour cherries
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
2.In a large bowl, combine cherries, 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and 4 tablespoons flour. Pour into 9x13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, oats, and brown sugar. Cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Sprinkle over cherries.
3.Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until topping is golden brown

  1. Cool gadget! Bet there will be more cherry crisps in your future! Your crisp looks fantastic!

  2. The cherry crisp looks so delicious-wish I could bake and cook -I'm a toast kind of girl!

  3. This looks fabulous. I love the cherries and could eat the whole bag when I get them. I went to a dinner party the other night and she made a peach cobbler, but the fabulous part was a caramel cream sauce that she got off Pioneer Woman that was made from cream and maple syrup reduced. Of course it was sooo sinful, but hey, it's dessert.

  4. Oh, cheery crisp with ice cream ... a winter fav.
    Have a beautiful & safe holiday weekend.

  5. What a yummy recipe! Don't feel bad about pie crusts, I can't make them well either!

  6. Oh, I'm such a cherry lover. Wow. Looks amazing.

  7. This crisp looks perfect and I will definitely have it on my to-be-baked list for the next cherry season.

    I used to be challenged with pie crust as well until just today. Just keep at it girl because the taste was like nothing I had ever had that was store bought.
