Of all the sweet treats out there, is anything more heartwarming than a fruit crisp? It’s got to be the most quintessential North American dessert in existence. The first time we tasted it was at the family table and it’s forever cemented in our memories. We are grateful to Kristie Pryor of The Sweet & Simple Kitchen for sharing her cherry crisp recipe that George Washington himself would be fond of. We recently spoke with Kristie on our podcast (listen here) and enjoyed hearing how she juggles a full time career in sales with her sweet treat blog. She tells of her love of a great daily workout or hike to balance her sweet tooth and how she believes laughter plays a big roll in her success. Listen in, you’ll love hearing her story.
One of the best things about an old fashioned fruit crisp is the ease and simplicity of the recipe. The few ingredients require hardly any time to assemble – It’s a no muss, no fuss dessert. You’d have to try pretty hard to mess this recipe up and whether it’s for a BBQ, housewarming, dinner party, or just a weeknight treat, it never disappoints.
Of all the variations on this recipe, cherries are our absolute favorite. It’s probably because of their natural combination of tarty sweetness. Kristie pairs them with strawberries which we must admit, is spectacular but you could play with any fruit combination you’re feeling in the moment. Raspberry peach is particularly delicious. Adjust the sugar to account for the natural sweetness of the fruit your using and enjoy!
