This old-fashioned cherry crisp is a delicious dessert made with simple ingredients. I love making this any time of the year using fresh or frozen cherries. We love to eat a slice with a big scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Cherry Crisp is my favorite! This dessert is incredibly easy to whip up. Leftovers can be kept in an airtight container and stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days. Another thing I love about this recipe is the crisp topping can be made ahead and frozen for up to 3 months. You can even make a large batch and simply store them in airtight containers and keep them in the freezer until ready to bake. If you prefer a thicker, filling, combine the cherries with a bit of flour or cornstarch. You also can easily turn this recipe into cherry crumble by substituting the oats with more flour and sugar. For some crunch, you can swap oats with chopped nuts.
1 large egg
32 ounces cherries (fresh or frozen)
1 c. sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. butter
1 c. all purpose flour
How to make Old Fashioned Cherry Crisp
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 400 degrees F.
Step 2: Start removing the pits from the fresh cherries. If using frozen cherries, thaw them first. Place the cherries in a greased 13 x 9-inch baking pan or stone.
Step 3: Place the flour, sugar, oats, baking powder, egg, and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Beat until you have a crumbled mixture. Over the cherries, sprinkle the mixture, making sure not to cover the cherries completely and leaving some breathing pockets all over. On top, drizzle the melted butter.
Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40 minutes.
Step 5: Remove from the oven when done, and serve the cherry crisp with a big scoop of ice cream or whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
