Celebrate the cherry season with a homemade fresh gluten-free cherry crisp! This quick and easy dessert is the perfect ending to a hot summer day!
Cherries are one of my favorite fruits of summer! I love their dark red color and the sweet burst of flavor when you bite into one. They make a delicious gluten-free snack when paired along with a sharp cheddar or Colby Jack cheese.
My absolute favorite way to eat cherries is in a crisp. I always have gluten-free flour and oatmeal on hand in the pantry.
You won’t believe how quick and easy fruit crisps are to make. You can also substitute the fresh cherries with frozen cherries. Do not thaw them in advance.
A sprinkle of almond extract over the cherries takes this gluten-free dessert to a whole new level of yumminess! The simple recipe serves two; however, you can easily double or triple it to feed a crowd!
My husband loves crisp a’la mode! Yep, adding a scoop or two of ice cream is a delicious way to serve this fresh gluten-free cherry crisp.Print
