Campfire Cherry Crisp

Serves 4-6

Equipment
Bonfire 2.0, Cast Iron Griddle Top + Hub, cast iron skillet

2 (14.5-ounce) cans of dark cherries

1 ¼ cups flour

1 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

¾ cup oats

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

Directions

Step 1: Build a Fire

Build a fire in your Solo Stove Bonfire. Burn 4-6 logs and allow them to reduce to hot coals. Set up the cooking hub with the griddle on top.

Step 2: Add the Cherries

Dump both cans of cherries in a cast iron skillet with walls.

Step 3: Make the Topping

Whisk together the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and oats in a small bowl. Pour the melted butter into the dry mixture and combine with a fork until clumps form.

Step 4: Sprinkle and Bake

Sprinkle the crisp topping all over the cherries. Cover with tin foil and place on top of the Solo Stove griddle. Bake the crisp for 10 minutes with the tin foil on. Remove the foil and allow the crisp to finish baking for 15 minutes.
