Easy Cherry Crisp

Yesterday I thought back to my grade school days and the cafeteria lunches. There were some dishes that no one would touch, like most schools, but then there were those that no one could get enough of. The chocolate crinkle cookies, puppy chow and cherry crisp (to name a few) were so yummy, I remember my friends and I would try to find those who didn’t want theirs. We would beg and plead to have their portion- if we were lucky we could find two or three.

Now this recipe isn’t hard at all and some of you may be disgusted I didn’t use fresh cherries, but hey, ya have to do with what you have. This recipe would be good if you want to use fresh cherries. I didn’t know there was such a thing as a cherry pitter!

Easy Cherry Crisp



  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup each of sugar, flour and quick- cooking oatmeal
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla


 Place the cherry filling in a 8×8 pan or a similar size.


For the topping: melt the butter in a bowl and add the rest of the rest ingredients.


 This is an easy recipe so your kids could help! Mix all of those ingredients up. It might seem a little dry at first, but make sure to get all of the butter worked in. Sprinkle the topping over the cherry filling and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

    I’m always embarrassed to admit this but … I could eat cherry pie filling straight from the can 24/7. I LOVE THAT STUFF. Even better than fresh cherries (that’s the embarrassing part, by the way).

    This looks fantastic! And easy! Bonus!
