Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix brown sugar, flour, oats, butter, and cinnamon together in a bowl until crumbly. Press half the mixture into the bottom of an 8x8-inch pan; top with cherries.
  3. Combine water, white sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract in a saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved and syrup is clear, about 5 minutes. Pour syrup over cherries; top with remaining brown sugar-oat mixture.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until topping is browned and cherry filling is bubbling, 30 to 35 minutes.

This was excellent. Hardest part was pitting the cherries but my husband and son loved it!!!

I had frozen (fresh picked)cherries which may have lead to too much liquid. If I make again I would use only 1/2 the syrup recipe

I have never been a fan of pie crust, so I tried this crisp recipe with my fresh cherries. This is a delicious recipe! The 'crust' reminds me of an oatmeal cookie, which I love, and that flavor made sense with the cherries. I did change the extract to almond, since I like almond extract with cherries. I will try this next with peaches, and then I will use the vanilla, and will add some spices. This will be my 'pie' recipe this year!

I am a culinary arts student and was in a pinch to make a dessert. I whipped this up as-is (using frozen cherries) and it sold out at our school's bistro. The head of the department even asked for the recipe. Fantastic!

Thank you for excellent recipe. I had just picked the cherries off my tree and was wondering what to make. Your recipe came just in time. Delicious with vanilla ice cream.
