By Deborah Harroun

My family loves appetizers. Every New Year’s Eve, we get together, and everyone contributes 1 or 2 appetizers. We have also been known to have a big Sunday dinner where appetizers serve as our entree. There is just something about bite-sized foods that makes me happy!

I’m usually pretty good at coming up with savory appetizers. But for some reason, sweet appetizers are a little harder for me, especially when I am going for easy.

But these Cherry Streusel Flatbreads are so simple! Not only are they an amazing appetizer, they would also make a great addition to a brunch buffet. We have even had them for dessert. They are so easy to put together and taste out of this world. They have become a new go-to recipe for me.

All you need is a Pillsbury® refrigerated thin pizza crust, cherry pie filling, flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, butter, powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.

ingredients on table

Open the pizza crust and cut it into 6 equal pieces. Place the pieces on 2 greased baking sheets.

Top each of the pieces with the pie filling.

Sprinkle the streusel on top of each of the flatbreads. Bake them until the dough is cooked through and lightly browned.
