Summertime Dessert: Individual Cherry Crisps | Family Economics

By Alison Lewis

Cobblers, crumbles, and crisps are all baked desserts known for their delicious fresh fruit fillings and flaky crusts. Cobblers have a topping that is similar to biscuits or pie crusts. The toppings on crisps and crumbles are more like a streusel (crisps typically contain oats). Since we had some summer fresh cherries in the refrigerator, I made this Individual Fresh Cherry Crisp recipe. My kids and I devoured them! Serve warm with ice cream or yogurt for the ultimate summer dessert.

Individual Cherry Crisps

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes
Yield: 4 servings


3 cups fresh cherries, pitted
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup dry oats
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Spread cherries evenly in four lightly greased 4-inch ramekins; set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, oats and baking powder, mixing well. Add egg and cinnamon, stirring gently with a fork to combine. Sprinkle flour mixture evenly over cherries. Drizzle with butter.

Place ramekins on a baking sheet. Bake in pre-heated oven 30 to 35 minutes, or until lightly browned and bubbly. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
