  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease an 8-inch square baking dish.
  2. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a large saucepan; stir in water until mixture is smooth. Add cherries and butter to sugar mixture and bring to a boil; cook and stir until cherry mixture is thickened, about 2 minutes. Pour cherry filling into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Mix flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl; cut in shortening using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir milk into flour mixture until topping is just moistened. Drop topping by spoonfuls over cherry filling; sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over topping.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until topping is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes.

This was delish. Only made a few changes. Omitted the cinnamon and added a 1/2 tsp almond extract. Used buttermilk instead of milk and used all butter, no shortening. Will make again.

I made this recipe for my husband and he almost ate the entire dessert by himself. The only thing he said was that could have made better by adding more of the topping on it. Other then that it ...

The cherry mixture turned into gelatin which we did not care for. I'm not sure what I did wrong.
