The best part of this Easy Cherry Crisp, aside from the flavor, is that you can make it with a handful of staple ingredients.
Easy Cherry Crisp
Nothing says summer like a good fruit crisp, cobbler or pie made with fresh, in-season fruit, like this Easy Cherry Crisp.
Our parents have a couple cherry trees in their yard and Dad recently brought Barbara a big bowl of cherries – already pitted (thanks Mom). She could not find a recipe for an easy cherry crisp in any of her old cookbooks, so she channeled her inner Grandma.
After asking herself WWGD – What Would Grandma Do – it came to her. Grandma would find a recipe and modify it with what ingredients she had on hand. So Barbara dug through Grandma Kuhn’s recipe box and found a recipe for an apple crisp then modified it for cherries!
The great thing about this Easy Cherry Crisp is, other than the cherries, the rest of the ingredients are ones that most folks always have on hand – flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg and butter!
This would be great served with another one of our Grandma’s recipes – her homemade vanilla ice cream!
It is great served with ANY kind of vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream or a dollop of Cool Whip!
