This quick and easy fruit crisp is perfect any time of the year, but especially right now when sweet, delicious cherries are in season!
Sooo… what are you guys up to? Because, tomorrow I’m visiting my wonderful family and friends in O-H-I-O for the next two weeks and that makes me… let’s not sugar coat here – RIDICULOUSLY HAPPY!!!! Anyway, you may notice that my posts are a little on the short side this week and next, because I’ll be partying it up! Just kidding. I’ll probably be running around visiting as many people as humanly possible and trying to make sure my kids don’t break anything anywhere. Plus, a joint birthday party (a Frozen one, of course) for the girls, a family reunion, my mother’s birthday, my sister-in-law’s birthday and the birth of my (second!!) great-nephew. Whew! I know, I really know how to pack it in, don’t I?! I’m a pro, people. Don’t try this at home.
Anyway, I know what you’re thinking. “Cherries again, Stephanie? Didn’t we just see a cherry pork recipe and cherry muffins? Is this some kind of sick obsession?” Well… maybe. They just look so pretty at the store and they end up in my cart. This recipe was inspired by this wonderful Blueberry Crisp from Beachbody Coach, Sara Stakely’s blog. A handful of clean ingredients and maybe ten minutes of prep time and you’ve got a sweet, lovely fruit crisp. I always have a few quick, easy recipes for fruit in my back pocket because as much as I love it as-is, isn’t it just nice to have a change-up sometimes? This one is particularly great because it really kills a pie craving! And I have to tell you, sometimes I really, really just want some pie. Seriously.
But, hey, who needs pie, with it’s gazillion-calorie-crust and it’s loaded-with-sugar filling? Not this girl. This gorgeousness definitely hits the spot and the smell of that coriander baking up in the oven? OMG, I almost pulled the thing out early because it smelled so freaking good.
