#125 Desservir de Pineapple Cherry Crisp with Banana Split Ice cream

No meal is complete without a sweet treat at the end. A cake or any dessert for that matter, gives the final touch at the end of my meal to make it perfect. The term "dessert" was derived from the
French word 'desservir"(to do a disservice to or clear away) refers to clearing the table after dinner.  We know from the beginning of time that the French are world famous for making desserts and decorating them artfully, so it makes sense that the word has a French origin-doesn't it?  I tend to have something sweet after we clean the dinner table---yes--literally!! I can skip the meal itself and go straight for the dessert too:) here's to my sweet tooth and an easy delicious recipe for a fruit crisp so scrumptious that you may not want to clear the table at all and go for dessert!! One that is so quick and easy to put together with simple store bought ingredients that you can combine any pie filling or cut fruit to make this lovely treat.
I am not a huge fan of Banana flavor, but I would most definitely recommend the Banana Split Ice cream for this particular combination. Fear not,  if you prefer to stay away from Banana you can serve this with Vanilla ice cream. It is out of this World, lip-smackingly Dee-lish!

1 medium packet of dried black cherries
1 lg. can crushed pineapple
