Fresh Cherry Crisp

It's cherry pickin' season!!! There are few things I love more than baking with things I have grown right in my backyard.  We have about a million cherries growing right now and found this DELICIOUS recipe to use them up! 

Fresh Cherry Crisp 

  • 4 cups pitted sour cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, combine cherries, 1 1/2 cups white sugar, and 4 tablespoons flour. Pour into 9x13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, oats, and brown sugar. Cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Sprinkle over cherries.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.

I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out fantastic!  Especially delicious hot out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or dollup of whipped cream. Yum!
