Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  4. Pour in butter and buttermilk and stir to combine, mixing only until no streaks of dry ingredients remain.
  5. Transfer cherry filling mixture into a 9 or 10 inch round pie baking dish.
  6. Drop dollops of topping onto the cherry mixture, forming a roughly even layer.
