Cherry Crisp

Lisa N


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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The addition of almond extract to the cherries adds that extra punch of flavor I absolutely loved. The crunchiness of the crumble, tops the recipe lovely. All that's missing is a big ol' scoop of vanilla ice cream!
