About 1 1/2 cups Rainer cherries, pitted and halved
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon flour
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cold butter, cut in small pieces
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray ramekins with cooking spray.
In a small bowl sprinkle the cherries with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and flour. Mix well. Let sit while you make the oat topping.
In a small bowl add the oats, cinnamon, salt, flour, and brown sugar. Stir.
Add the butter to the oat mix. Mix with your hands until you have a crumbly mixture.
Pour sugared cherries into the sprayed ramekins. Make sure each one is even. Add the oat topping.
