“Cherry pie filling is lovingly sandwiched between 2 layers of crunchy oaty goodness. Substitute apple pie filling and sprinkle a little extra cinnamon over the top if you like.”

Very good! I basically just used the crisp topping in this recipe, using all whole-wheat pastry flour for the white. It was delicious! I hate canned cherry pie filling, so instead, I used one 16 oz. bag of frozen sweet dark cherries from Trader Joe's, and one can of sour pie cherries. I poured the juice from the can in because I like juicy crisp desserts. I added no additional sugar. Put the crisp all on top and used the same size pan called for in the recipe. It was perfect!



Good overall flavor (I used blueberry filling). I will, however, have to play with the recipe. When I think of "crunch", I like it all to be crunchy. The layer on the bottom got too soft for my taste. Next time I'll put it all on top. Also, I won't use rolled oats again, the texture wasn't right. I'll use the quick oats next time.



Very good and very simple to make. I added a splash of almond extract to give it a boost of cheery flavor. I also didn't make the bottom layer with the oat mixture. I used it all on top. Definately a keeper...great for when unexpected company arrives!
