One 20-ounce can cherry pie filling
3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice plus 1 3/4 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1 2/3 cups cake flour
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 stick cold unsalted butter, thinly sliced
1/4 cup sliced almonds
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a deep ceramic or glass pie plate, stir the cherry pie filling with the amaretto and lemon juice.
In a medium bowl, whisk the flour with 2/3 cup of the sugar, the baking powder, lemon zest and salt. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the cherries, then dot with the butter. Sprinkle the top with the almonds and remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the top is set and pale golden and the filling is bubbling. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
