This Easy Cherry Crisp is a cinch to make, comes together quickly and features a beautiful bounty of fresh, juicy cherries! You can use fresh or frozen cherries!
Ingredients
  • FOR THE CHERRIES:
  • 5 cups fresh or frozen Washington cherries, pitted and halved
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FOR THE CRISP:
  • ¾ cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 6 Tablespoons salted butter, cubed
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9" pie dish or 9x9" square baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. If using a pie pan, I like placing the pie pan on a rimmed baking sheet just in case there are any spillovers.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cherries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and vanilla and stir together until cherries are fully coated. Pour the cherry mixture into the prepared dish in an even layer.
  3. For the crisp topping: In a medium bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour and mix well. Add in the cubed butter and using a pastry blender or two forks, begin cutting the butter into the oat mixture until pea-size crumbs come together. Sprinkle the crisp topping liberally over the cherry mixture.
  4. Bake the crisp for 40-45 minutes or until the crisp topping is golden brown and set and the mixture is bubbly. Allow to cool off for about 15-20 minutes before serving.
