How do you make a cherry crisp?

This recipe is incredibly simple and will have you scraping the dish for every last bite.

Grab your 8×8 greased baking dish and preheat your oven to 375°! Add your butter to a bowl and microwave until just melted. Combine it with your Crisp Mix and set aside.

Pour your jar of Mamma Mary’s Top Secret Cherries into the baking dish. Sprinkle the crisp evenly over the Top Secret Cherries and bake for 30 minutes until hot and bubbly!

Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

How do I store my cherry crisp?

To store: Cover your crisp and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

To reheat: To bring the breath of Northern Michigan back into this crisp, warm the leftovers in the over at 350° until hot. You can also reheat in the microwave in a pinch.
