  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 is a great recipe, but I did not have shortening. It was okay and I used oil. I also added a bit of lemon zest to the cherries as they simmered. It made a bit difference I think. Enjoy!

Love this recipe ! I made no changes the two times I have made it and everyone enjoys it to the last bit.

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