Sour Cherry Oat Crisp
For pitting cherries, I recommend inserting a clean, opened paperclip into the top of the cherry and pulling out the pit.
Three cans drained sour cherries can be substituted for the fresh cherries. If you are using canned cherries, you just need to save the drained juice from the cans. Just be sure to squeeze each one gently to check for any pits that may have been missed (you don't want anyone to break a tooth!).
Quick-cooking oats can be substituted for the rolled oats.
Substitute margarine for the butter if desired.
