Allen's Bing Cherry Crisp Recipe--TNT

PeppA, my other half, bought a couple bags of Bing Cherries yesterday. The kids love them! They've been eating them all afternoon, getting dark cherry juice all over their faces.

Well, after we ate dinner, PeppA told me to put the cherries away before they all dissappeared. I told her I was thinking about making a cherry crisp. She immediately turned to face me, grinned, and started shaking her head in agreement.

Well, I had to run to the store real quick to get some oatmeal. As I was coming home, I had an evil thought. Where the heck is my cherry pitter? I've been known to take it to work, to pit Kalamata olives. When I got home, I searched my equipment drawers, and sure enough, it's not there. Great. Now I've got to pit a bunch of cherries by hand. Not that hard, though, just tedious.

Allen’s Bing Cherry Crisp
Yields: 8 - 10 servings

1 c all-purpose flour
t baking powder
t baking soda
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c quick-cooking oats
c (one stick) butter, softened
~ 5 c fresh Bing Cherries, pitted
1 c sugar
2 T margarine or butter
1 T lemon juice, or to taste, optional

Preheat oven to 350F (175C). Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and oats. Add the brown sugar, and mix until uniform. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or your hands. It should have a mealy texture, similar to coarse sand. Set aside.
Mix the cherries with the sugar, margarine or butter, and lemon juice in a 5 qt Dutch Oven. Place the pan over medium heat, and bring to a simmer. Add the topping over the cherries. Press the topping down gently with your hand, being careful not to press your hand down into the cherries. Bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a bit before serving.
This dessert just begs for some ice cream!

In a little while, once the morning fog clears out of my head, I'll post a pic of what it looked like.

worcester sauce or some chili sauce glass bottles are ideal, then you need to get a chopstick, place the cherry on the open end of the bottle line up the chopstick and hit it, the pit goes into the bottle and your cherry should be on the chopstick minus a pit :)
