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 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! The Test Kitchen
