Cherries are everywhere right now. My kids LOVE them! I knew we had to come up with a yummy way to use them.

This recipe was a blast to make with my daughter. My daughter helped me pit the cherries and put it together and I knew how much more enjoyable would be to eat once finished because of the fun memories behind it.

This crisp was FANTASTIC! The crumb topping adds a perfect crunch while the cherry base provides a silky smoothness. If you are looking for that perfect summertime treat, pair a warm plate of this with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is heavenly!
