Love the Cherry Crisp

That Apple Cherry Crisp sounds wonderful.

One recipe I love that features the sweet brightness of cherries is for Red, White, and Blueberry Cobbler Cake which is at http://huggingthecoast.com/2009/0...ed-white-and-blueberry-cobbler-cake/

In Hungary, they make wonderful, sour cherry preserves which they serve on pancakes topped with sour cream. So good!
