Easy Cherry Crisp

January 25, 2021Teresa

Easy Cherry Crisp is such a delightful recipe. It’s really easy to toss together since it uses canned cherry pie filling rather than fresh cherries. The clincher is that it uses cinnamon in the topping. I wondered how cinnamon would work with cherries, but it turned out really delicious.

Back in January I made up a meal for a friend from our church that had a squamish cell carcinoma removed from the top of her head. I was in the middle of packing up our house preparing for a move and didn’t have a ton of stuff on hand. But I still had all the ingredients in my pantry to make up a batch of this.

Her husband was on a diet where he was only eating soups. So I added a Creamy Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Chowder and a batch of Jalapeno Bacon Cornbread since they enjoy Tex-Mex. They loved the meal, and I enjoyed being able to stop all of my packing for a day and do something different. 🙂

I found this recipe over a decade ago from the Cherry Marketing Institute. Unfortunately, I’m no longer able to find a link to the original recipe. But I followed that recipe pretty closely.

Easy Cherry Crisp is just that. EASY. It’s quick, simple and yet amazing to the taste buds. I also made one for us which we served ala mode. My, oh my! Simply wonderful. Enjoy as a treat for Valentine’s Day.

I never would have dreamed the combination of cherries, almond extract and cinnamon would taste so well. I thought the flavors would be competing with each other. But this dessert turned out so tasty.
