4 cups tart cherries, (about 1½ pounds), pitted

1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup coarsely crushed amaretti crumbs, (about 18 amaretti)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Preheat oven to 400°F.
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.
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.
