Cherry Crisp

This is my favorite substitute for Cherry Pie due to its reduced preparation time. Crunchy and tasty, perfect with vanilla ice-cream.  I have recently updated this recipe to reduce the amount of sugar used.



  • 4 to 5 cups pitted fresh or frozen cherries
  • 1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder


  • 1 ¼ cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup butter, diced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix pitted cherries with 1/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Pour into 9x13 pan.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together oatmeal, 1 & 1/4 cup flour, cinnamon powder and brown sugar. Once well mixed, mix in diced butter.
  4. Spread topping mix evenly over cherry filling.
  5. Bake in 375F oven for 45-55 minutes, until topping is golden brown.
  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice-cream.
