  • 1 cup canned pitted tart cherries
  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cold butter
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring cherries and 1/3 cup sugar to a boil. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and remaining sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk just until moistened. Spread into a greased 3-cup baking dish; pour cherries over the top.
  3. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly and edges are golden brown. Serve warm.
