Hey ya’ll! You will love this cherry crisp recipe.  It is so easy.  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. If you don’t love cherries though check out some of my other Crisp recipes like Peach CrispEasy and Delicious Apple Crisp RecipeOld-Fashioned Rhubarb Crisp, and Recipe for Pear Crisp.

Now, most of you know that we at Southern Plate are not usually opposed to buying store brands or mixes. Any way that we can help you save a dollar is okay with us. But cherry pie filling is an exception to that rule.  Having tried several store brands and finding that they didn’t have many cherries in them, we stick with this recipe instead. So unless you have a trusted brand that you have used before, I’d spend the extra to get a national brand.
