  • 2 cups flour
  • 3-4 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup oil

  • Combine oil and milk; then add to dry ingredients, stirring with a fork.
  • Save back about 1/4 of dough for topping.

  • Combine cherries with sugar, salt, corn starch, and cinnamon. Mix well.
  • Pour cherry mixture into crust, and top with sliced butter.
  • Finally, crumble your crust topping over the cherry mixture.
