I made this recipe with apricots instead of cherries.  I served tastes of the recipe at several classes and events, and it was a very popular recipe.  Adults and children both really liked it and a lot of people asked for the recipe and said they were going to make it.  I did feel it was a bit light on the "crumble", so I increased the oats a bit for what I felt was a better fruit/topping ratio.
