Hey Friends! I’ve been thinking of Valentine’s Day meals and of course dessert topped the list. Then I decided that the dessert must be red since valentines are usually red. While going through the list of red desserts in my mind, cherries kept popping up. I love cherries. Christy has a delicious recipe for cherry rolls in her next cookbook. I got the pleasure of testing that recipe and although it took me several days, I was able to eat the entire thing. You will have to wait for that recipe but this one is equally delicious. It is so easy. It can be put together in about 10 minutes and only takes 30 minutes to cook. If you want to take it over the top, serve it with a dollop of whipped topping or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Plain or topped, it is sure to please.
Now, most of you know that Christy and I are not usually apposed to buying store brands. Any way that I can save a dollar is okay with me. But cherry pie filling is an exception to that rule. I tried several store brands and found that they didn’t have many cherries in them, mostly filling. So unless you have a trusted brand that you have used before, I’d spend the extra to get a national brand.
Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day with your sweetie? I plan on mine cooking us a steak on the grill. My mouth is already watering. I’ll put a couple of potatoes in the oven and some bread to round out the meal. Of course we will have this cherry crisp with a scoop of ice cream. I’m already looking forward to it. I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, too!
Our all-star lineup today is cherry pie filling, flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans, and butter or margarine.
Spread pie filling in pie plate or 8×8 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. My mother-in-law bought me this pretty pie plate with cherries on it for my birthday so I decided to use it. She did good, don’t you think?
Mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans. Pour in melted margarine and stir until combined.
Put small dabs (that’s a word we use a lot here) all over the top of the pie filling I tried to use a spoon and then a fork but found my fingers did a better job of pinching off little dabs and putting it on the pie filling.
Place in preheated 350 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes. This beautiful colorful, delicious dessert is the happy ending. Aren’t you proud?
