  • “A great easy way to make breakfast.We thoroughly enjoyed this “new” breakfast dish.I didnt have the cherry filling, so I actually went to the store the night before so I could make it exactly as the recipe called for.You are right about using different fillings, and I may do that the next time,…..but I really enjoyed the cherry.Thanks for sharing.”

  • “This is a wonderful dish.I made it using the cherry pie filling but any flavor could be used.I agree with your DH, this is good anytime, not just for breakfast.”

  • “This was very good. I doubled it and used Apple Pie filling and we loved it. I will be making this again once I have a over that works right.”

  • “I made this for my mom’s birthday this past week. Very simple recipe, but I did add a half a teaspoon of french vanilla extract to the crumble mix for extra flavor. It came out very nicely, and got good reviews from the family :)”

  • “This was very good.Just like a cherry crisp but with extra on the bottom.And since the “crisp” part is my favorite, I like this very much. It was very good topped with vanilla ice cream.I thought the bottom would be crumbly and I would have to spoon it out but it actually kept its shape and I was able to cut it into a bar form.Thanks for this recipe.”

  • “Doesn’t get any easier than this. It maybe took me 3 minutes to throw this together and throw it in the oven. I had run out of brown sugar, so I used white, and my top didn’t look as nice as that, still tasted wonderful though. Mine was a little more crumbly on top.”

  • “Love it!Anything cherry is OK by me, and I’m a big fan of crisps and crumbles and whatnot.This dessert is fast, easy, and delicious.The fact that it uses pantry staples is also a plus.Next time I think I’ll try mixing dried cherries with the pie filling, to up the cherry ante!”

  • “This is a new favorite dessert. We’ve tried it with several different pie fililngs…I think tonight it might be blackberry. :)”

  • “Our family LOVES the great taste of this dessert!With or without vanilla ice cream :-)I love how QUICK and EASY it is to make!I’ve made it so many times now, I can have a batch mixed and in the oven in less than 5 minutes!”
