This delicious Crock Pot Cherry Crisp from Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Fall Favorites just may be the perfect dessert. Quick, easy and delicious. What more could you want from a dessert?
I come from a divided household.
My dad is a peach man through and through. He just had a birthday. Cris and I both got Dad the same thing…and he didn’t mind one bit! We both made him peach cobblers because that is the best present in Dad’s eyes. So, if you are a peach fan, feel free to use peach pie filling instead of cherry.
I, however, am a cherry girl through and through. I can remember growing up and making hobo pies while on vacation. I would always hope and pray that mom would have a can of cherry pie filling too so that I could have my favorite hobo pie over the campfire…yum! I was also greatly excited when Cris solved our divided household problem (which is even worse when you add Mikey in who is an apple man) with these Mini Pie Bites. I was so excited to finally get cherry pie!
Crock Pot Cherry Crisp
So I may get a bit excited when I see a cherry dessert…if you couldn’t tell. So when I run across a great recipe like this Crock Pot Cherry Crisp, I call dibs as soon as I see it so that big sister doesn’t make it to share with ya’ll. 😉
As I have mentioned before, I have a bit of trouble making any kind of crumble. So I was a little intimidated by the topping for this recipe. I will admit that I gave up trying to cut the butter in with two forks. I am not good at it at ALL, so I definitely didn’t have time for that. So I just dug in with my hands and lo-and-behold, it worked this time! It actually worked! Woohoo! Maybe I will get this crumble thing down after all!
- 21 oz can cherry pie filliing
- ⅔ c packed brown sugar
- ½ c old fashion oats, uncooked
- ½ c all-purpose flour
- 1 t vanilla extract
- ⅓ c butter, softened
- If you haven't already, set your butter out to soften
- Spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray
- Dump your pie filling in your slow cooker
- Mix together your brown sugar, oats, flour and vanilla
- "Cut" in your butter...or use your hands...and make a crumble
- Sprinkle this mixture over your cherry pie filling
- Cover your crock with a couple paper towels
- Place the lid over the paper towels and cook on low for 4 hours (It should be warmed through and bubbling)
Slow Cooker Recommendation
My 3 qt crock pot was the perfect size for this Crock Pot Cherry Crisp. Any 3 quart crock pot would work. You don’t want to go much bigger than that though so that it will cook up nicely and not burn.
