A Stroll in the Garden

Flowers don’t worry about how they’re going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful. – Jim Carrey

A flower blossoms for its own joy. – Oscar Wilde

Cherry Crisp

My baby cherry tree is growing up!  Hubby actually harvested a colandar of red, ripe juicy cherries!  Not enough for a pie, but no matter!  I combined the cherries with the last of the strawberries and raspberries in a quick and easy crisp dessert.

Don’t these look yummy?

Place the cleaned and pitted cherries (about 1 pound) in an ungreased 8 x 8 inch square pan (I added the berries to make up the difference).

Heat the oven to 375°.

Yup, I use real butter!

 Add 1/3 cup softened butter or margarine to a mixing bowl.

With a fork, mix in 2/3 cup packed brown sugar; 1/2 cup flour; 1/2 cup oats; 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.

Sprinkle topping over fruit. 

 Bake about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.


Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
