Fresh Cherry Crisp…

by Jamie on June 10, 2009


Do you ever go to the market and toss way too much produce into your cart? I do this all too often, but I just cannot resist summer fruits like peaches, nectarines and cherries! Sometimes I find myself ripping open the bag of cherries on the way home and ever so discreetly spit the pits out the window…did I just admit to that? That’s okay…we’re all friends here! Sunday evening I found my refrigerator overflowing with beautiful cherries and decided to throw something together to use them up before they got fuzzy! I ended up making individual cherry crisps…they turned out fantastic and were even better topped with vanilla bean ice cream. These minis held up really well in the fridge and were just as good warmed in the microwave the next day. The boyfriend loved the topping so much he has been begging me to make more for ice cream sundaes!
Fresh Cherry Crisp
makes 4 individual servings

Ingredients:
2 cups pitted sour cherries
1/2 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup butter, melted

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Spray four ramekins with non-stick cooking spray.
3. In a medium bowl, mix the cherries, 2 TBS flour and white sugar.
4. Evenly distribute the cherry mixture into four ramekins.
5. Combine the oats, 1/2 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the cherry mixture.
6. Bake for 30-35 minutes.

Notes: You can easily double this recipe and prepare in one baking dish (9×13).

Summer fruits are always great with crisps and crumble. They are also easy to make and such delicious individual desserts to be served after a meal or whenever you feel like having one!

this is really making me want to make a crisp, cobbler, etc., anything with fruit on the bottom and yum on the top.

I made this today and it was delish. The topping is so yummy – buttery and crunchy – and I can't wait to try it on other fruits. Thanks for the recipe!

That was sooooo good! My wonderful hubby was allowed to pick clean the cherry tree of one of his customers and he brought home 2 full coolers…I mean I was giving away ice-cream buckets of cherries…my friends were very thankful :-)
I have made many fruit crisps before but never with cherries so I Googled for a recipe and landed on yours which I liked because it had oats in it.
Thought you might like to know the few changes I made. First, I did double up and make it in a 13×9; my cherries were not sour but sweet black ones (Bing I think); I did not have brown sugar so just used granular; I added a little cinnamon to the cherry mix and then a little more cinnamon and nutmeg to the topping. Finally, I used up some frozen raspberries and some rhubarb that I had, about a cup of each and then 2 cups of cherries…and that's it!
Love the look of your site and look forward to perusing it soon.
Blessings to all :-)

This is also a good recipe to use for sardine crisp. Just add one can of sardines, (with or without oil) and bake for 30 minutes. Let them cool for five minutes, top with whipped cream and nuts, and you’re ready to eat!

Cherries are one of my very favourite fruits. I can’t wait until they’re in season so I can try out this delicious recipe. Thanks!

Note to self: Buy a cherry pitter.
