6cupssweet cherriespitted, fresh or defrosted from frozen
1tbspfresh lemon juice
1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2cuppacked brown sugar
1/2cupsalted butter Melted
Preheat your oven to 375°. Grease a 9x9 baking pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, toss together all of the cherry filling ingredients until mixed together well. Spoon into the prepared 9x9 pan.
In a medium bowl, combine the topping until combined and crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the cherry filling in an even layer.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly around the edges. If the topping browns too quickly and the filling isn't bubbling yet cover with aluminum foil and continue to bake.
Remove and let cool until slightly warm, then serve with vanilla ice cream.
If you are using sour cherries (example Evans cherries) add in another 3 tablespoons of white sugar to the filling.
