Cherry Strawberry Crisp

Cherry Strawberry Crisp

This cherry strawberry crisp recipe is perfect for a crowd! It's a seriously good summer dessert that's easy to make - the summer berry flavor really shines. It's even better topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

It took all my will power to actually take photos of this crisp before digging in to enjoy! I've never really met a crumble or a crisp I didn't like, and this recipe does not disappoint. 

When deciding what to name this recipe, I learned the difference between a cobbler, crumble, and crisp. Apparently a crumble and crisp are often interchangeable, but the actual difference is that crisp toppings contain oats which get crispier. Cobblers are topped with a biscuit mixture while crumbles and crisps have a cereal or granola like topping.
