This is delicious. I do have a question about the crust. Is it supposed to be crispy? Do you let it cool before putting the filling on it?
This is everything you want from a cherry crisp. It's a keeper... Thanks! I made one drastic change, though, in trying to cut calories: I eliminated the bottom crust, since I'd never seen one on a crisp before. It did not suffer because of this, and brought the calories down to 336, instead of the original 559! I do think I'll reduce the granulated sugar to 1/2 cup next time, to bring it down to 312 calories. It was still be pretty sweet, even though I used 1 cup of the unsweetened juice from the 2 cans of tart cherries in place of the cherry drink called for. (I'm jealous of you ladies with the cherry trees!) I also added 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract, and didn't add any red food coloring - it was nice and red.
My children were swarming the counter while cooking -tasting the crust, tasting the cherry mixture, tasting the topping...licking the bowls even! It's in the oven now but WOW-WEE.Glad we have a couple cherry trees because this is an instant hit right out of the bowl!
This cherry crisp is outstanding! I made the recipe as written and added a little almond extract. We really enjoyed it and I'll definitely be making this again!
Best ever recipe for cherry crisp! I did add 1 tsp. of almond flavoring because I love the combination of cherry and almond. Be sure to grease the pan well.
Gave this a try and it is an excellent recipe. I added a little ginger to the cherries to give it some zing. Love cherries!!!
I have been looking for a great cherry crisp recipe, as my old one was just "so-so". This is IT :) My family fights over the topping on cherry crisp - but this recipe provides a generous topping - plenty for everyone! DELICIOUS.
Absolutely wonderful! Cut the sugar in the crust to 3/4 c and left it in the oven for 3 min longer before filling. Crunchy and not too sweet!
Will definitely make this again. Loved the pastry on the bottom. I added some rhubarb to it and will try w/o it next time.
