If you are looking for a quick and easy dessert that not only tastes great, but is also pretty…this is it! I usually think of a fruit crisp as a Fall dessert, because I almost always make them with apples.  However, this recipe is a nice twist on that classic.  The fresh blueberries in this recipe balance out the cherry pie filling and keep this crisp from being overly sweet.  There is a nice tart after-bite, perhaps it would be a little less tart with riper berries, but I really liked that about it.  Enjoy!
