1-1/2 lbs sweet cherries (approximately), pitted
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/4 cup white wheat flour
2 tsp apple pie spice, OR the four spices below
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp cardamom
1 Recipe Fruit Crisp Topping
Evenly spread the fruit filling in the bottom of a 5-quart crock pot.
Then crumble and spread the topping over top of the filling, making sure to cover the filling completely.
Cook on LOW for 2-3 hours.
Leave the lid off the last half hour to allow some of the liquid to evaporate and it to thicken.
It's best if you let it sit for 15 -30 minutes before serving, so it can cool and thicken a bit.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
