Bing Cherries are in season, so it's the perfect time to find a "Bing Cherry Crisp Recipe."
I love fresh cherries; they are beautiful to look at with rich, red, jewel-like hues and juicy, fresh flavor! Maybe because they are so easy to use as snacks, however, I haven't used them in cooking. Then there's also the reality of the pits - making preparation for baking a time-consuming task. So, I searched online for a recipe that would be fairly simple and delicious. What I found, in fact, was a recipe for homemade pie filling that will also work for crisp. And, an accompanying cherry crisp recipe. I made both the filling and the crisp in little over a half hour! (Note: I used frozen cherries for this recipe because I had them in the freezer, but I also purchased a cherry pitter for future recipes.)

Maybe these recipes could be used for other seasonal fruits like apples, pears, or peaches. I'm going to give it a try! Crisps just might be a nice addition to Afternoon Refreshments at the Scarborough Inn, too!
