 ----------------------------------TOPPING----------------------------------
       1 c  All-Purpose Flour
       1 tb Granulated Sugar
       1 ts Baking Powder
     1/4 ts Salt
       2 tb Butter or Margarine
     1/3 c  To 1/2 cup Milk
 
   Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  
   Drain cherries or peaches, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Discard the
   remaining juice. Combine fruit and lemon juice and set aside. In a
   saucepan, combine sugars, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg; stir in
   reserved fruit juice. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently about 2
   minutes. Remove from heat and add fruit and vanilla. If using
   cherries, stir in almond extract instead of the vanilla. Pour into an
   ungreased 8 inch square baking pan.
  
   For topping, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; cut in
   butter until crumbly. Stir in enough milk to moisten. Drop by
   tablespoonfuls over fruit mixture. Bake at 450 for 10 to 13 minutes
   or until golden brown.
  
   * We like doubling the dough recipe. If you do, bake at 400 degrees F.
     for 20 to 25 minutes
