Ingredients

Filling:

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¾ cup water

  • 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed

  • 1 tablespoon butter

Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup white sugar, divided

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup milk

  • 3 tablespoons shortening

Directions

  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.
