1 Cup Unbleached Flour

2 Tablespoons Sugar

1 ½ Teaspoons Baking Powder

¼ Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

¼ Cup Butter

6 Cups Pitted Tart Cherries

1 Cup Sugar

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch

1 Large Egg

¼ Cup Milk

Preheat your oven to 400° F.  In a medium sized bowl, for the topping stir together flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and set aside.  In a large saucepan, for the filling, combine the cherries, 1 cup sugar and the cornstarch.  Cook over a medium heat until the cherries release juices.  Stir occasionally.  Continue to cook over medium heat until it thickens and bubbles.  Keep hot.  In a small bowl stir together the egg and milk and add to the flour mixture.  Stir just until the flour mixture is moistened.  Transfer the hot cherry filling to a 2 quart square baking dish.  With a spoon, immediately drop the topping into six mounds on top of the filling.  Bake for 20 minutes until topping is golden.  Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 1 hour.  Serve with vanilla ice cream.  Serves 6
