Cherry Crunch Pie

This is originally my recipe except my mom stole it, well she borrowed it, well maybe I just shared it with her. I happened upon this recipe while in college. I'm not sure in what cooking class I made it in but it became a fast favorite of mine. At least I got one thing out of my $40,000+ education that I'm not really using except in my blog! That's right I have a Bachelor's in Hotel/Restaurant Management and I'm a successful Service Coordinator for a telecommunications company. Funny how that happens isn't it? Don't get me wrong, I love my job, but my education is rather useless at this moment in time. I did use it for about 4 years after college, but after that I moved to a smaller town and there's not much calling for it. I did learn lots of fun cooking tips and things like that which I use in everyday life. And you lucky people get to read about!

This is a super easy recipe and totally yummy, but unfortunately the hubby is not a fan of cherries so I don't have the opportunity to enjoy it very often. Remember how I told you he was going to be gone for a while during the week for work? Well, I may have used this to my advantage. No no no I'm not telling you I made it and invited my parents over, although that would have been a fantastic thing for a wonderful daughter like me to do. Actually my mom invited me over and told me I could pick whatever I wanted. This was definitely one of my top priorities. Along with several other dishes I will be sharing with you. My hubby frequently tells me I am spoiled by my parents. Now that I share this information with you I'm sure you might agree with him. Well the truth is I might be spoiled but I prefer to say I'm just loved!

This dessert is the best when it is served while still warm and fresh out of the oven. Well let it cool a little bit or that ice cream that you top it with will melt! Enjoy!

We need to get together and enjoy one of these. My husband doesn't eat cherries, either.
