Delicious, quick, and easy cherry crisp made with cherry pie filling and pantry ingredients. I made this recipe so that there is a generous amount of topping for a 9x9-inch baking dish.

You will see by the recipe that I add additional sugar to the cherry pie filling, but you could cut it back to your preference or completely omit it.

The addition of almond extract to the cherries adds that extra punch of flavor we absolutely loved to this crisp. The crunchiness of the crumble on top is so good. All that's missing is a big ol' scoop of vanilla ice cream! This is seriously simple to make when you need a last-minute dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
