cherry ice cream. The whole family really loved this crisp. For some reason, they boys weren't crazy about the cherry pie. Too bad, because that one was a lot more work! This one is super easy, so I'd probably make this recipe again next time instead of the pie, although making the pie was very satisfying.
Sweet Cherry Crisp
adapted from Food
4 cups pitted sweet cherries (measure after pitting)
3 tablespoons vanilla sugar (or regular sugar)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1⁄2 tablespoon lemon juice
1⁄8 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, gently toss first 5 ingredients together. Place in a greased casserole dish, 8 inch square pan, or a deep-dish pie pan.
2. In another bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients, using a pastry blender or fork. The mixture should resemble course crumbs. Spread mixture over pie filling. Bake for 30 minutes or until brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
