Recipe Notes
  • 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!  
  • Serve this cherry crisp with another one of our Grandma's recipes - her homemade vanilla ice cream! Honestly, just serve this with ANY kind of vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream or a dollop of Cool Whip!
