Cherry Amaretti Gratin


From EatingWell:  July/August 1994

Sweet amaretti crumbs make a quick, low-fat topping that is a perfect foil for tart cherries.

4 servings | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour



  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Toss cherries, lemon juice, amaretto and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Arrange in a 1-quart gratin dish or pie plate or in 4 individual dishes.
  3. Stir together amaretti crumbs and brown sugar in a small bowl. Sprinkle evenly over the cherry mixture. Bake until cherries are bubbling and the topping is golden, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes. Dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve warm.
