Cherry Crunch Dessert

You all know I love easy, and this is a very easy dessert you can mix up and bake in under an hour. Use your food processor on the pulse setting to incorporate the butter into the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon mixture to speed things up. This would also be great with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries or apples.


1 cup rolled oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
3⁄4 cup brown sugar
1⁄2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1⁄2 cup butter
4 cups sweet cherries, pitted and cut in half

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the rolled oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut butter into mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle one half of the crumb mixture in the bottom of the baking dish. Cover with cherries, and sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture evenly over top.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.

Serve warm topped with vanilla ice-cream or whipped cream if desired.
