Cherry cobbler is a timeless classic. Try it with fresh sour red cherries, which are in season for just a little while. You may also want to put a drop or two of almond extract into the fruit to underscore the cherry taste.
The fruits in this crisp are tropical. They let you get a warm hint of summer's pleasure any time of year. The wontons provide a flaky pastry for the "crisp".
