This was sooo yummy!!! I did make the following modifications - used 2 cans of sour cherries, and cut the sugar/flour in half. Put in an 8x8 pan. I cut the topping in half and took out the shortening completely (not sure why you would want to add unnecessary trans fat). Also, I used salted butter, which I'm sure helped give the topping its great flavor. This ROCKS with Blue Bell vanilla ice cream.



My rating is for the following modifications: I used a bag of Trader Joe's frozen cherries and berries (about 3 cups) because that was all I had and reduced the amount of sugar to 1/2 cup for the fruit mixture. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon over it. I did not use the shortening! You only need 1/2 cup of butter for the topping or it will be greasy. Shortening has no place in a recipe like this. I look forward to trying it with the sour cherries next time.



This turned out pretty good. I did have some slight changes. I didn't have enough frozen cherries so I added half the amount in frozen peaches. The peaches and cherries tasted great together and complimented perfectly! I didn't have any shortening so I used 1 c butter. The cooking time seemed right on. All in all the only thing I would change would be to cut down on some of the topping. There was just a bit too much so you didn't taste as much fruit as I'd like to, just a mouth full of sugar! I would say cut the topping by 1/4 or even 1/3. I'm going to experiment to find which is best. Oh also, I had a little juice spill out so it got burnt on the coil. It smelled AWFUL! Just in case, I'd lay down some foil underneath.
