Bing Cherry & Apple Pistachio Crisp.↓

We know the heat is on but no matter what the temperature, anything with a mouth has time for apple crisp. We poached this oven baked treat from Delishytown. It is a variation of the traditional apple crisp recipe, custom fitted with cherries and pistachios.


• 3 Granny Smith apples
• 1 lemon
• 1-2 cup of bing cherries
• 1/2 cup of pistachios
• 1 cup of oatmeal
• 1/4 cup of butter
• 1/4 of brown sugar
• 2 tsp of sugar
• 1/2 tsp kosher salt
• 1 tsp of corn starch
• 1 tsp vanilla
• handful of cinammon

Prep Time: 20 mins ↔ Cook Time: 25-30 mins ↔ Ready In: 45-50 mins


Pre heat oven to 350. Butter a casserole dish.

Peel and slice 3 Granny Smith apples. Squeeze the juice of 1 whole fresh lemon over the apples. This becomes part of the sauce and also helps prevent the apples from browning.

Pit 1- 2 cups bing cherries. I don’t have a cherry pitter, so I just used a paring knife and went around the pit of each cherry. This took only about 10 minutes. It sounds like a  tedious job, but to me it was fun, and delicious because you get to eat as many cherries as you  can while you perform this task.

Mix the cherries with the apples & lemon,  along with 1 tsp  vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon, 1 tsp corn starch, and a bit of salt.

Shell some pistachios, about 1/2 cup. Crush them with a mortar and pestle of food processor into big crumbs.

Mix the pistachios with 1 cup oatmeal, 1/4 c butter, 2 tsp sugar, 1/4 c brown sugar, dash of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp kosher salt. I use my hands, freshly washed, to combine the butter with the oatmeal, pistachios and spices.

Bake for 25 – 30 min at 350 until bubbly and sweet. Serve over ice cream for a real treat!
