What you made is a modified cherry crisp. So call it Savanah's Cherry Crisp. To get the topping to become more crispy, you have to add some flour, to combine with the fat and oatmeal. The texture is right when the topping looks like it is made of small pebbles. The starch and gluten from the flour hold everything together. Bake in a 425 degree oven.
Another ooey-gooey delight is made by pouring cherry pie filling into a rectangular cake pan, spreading an uncooked yellow cake mix over the top, sprinkling on chopped walnuts, and then drizzling a stick of melted butter over the top, as evenly as possible. Just stick it in a 400 degree oven until the top browns just lightly, about 40 minutes, and serve with ice cream, or all by itself. That one is called "Dump Cake". And you can change the pie filling and cake mix flavor. I personally love apple, with a spice-cake on top. Add fresh whipped cream and you're serving up a fond memory from when I could enjoy such things (still can, but rarely and in very small pieces).
