    This recipe calls for red pie cherries enhanced with a little kirsch
   and topped with a shortcake biscuit featuring cream cheese and
   chopped pecans.
   
    Preheat oven to 425^F Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or dish.
    In a large mixing bowl, carefully spoon together cherries, juice,
   brown sugar, tapioca and kirsch. Pour cherry filling into greased
   baking pan or dish; drizzle melted butter or margarine on top and set
   aside.
   
    In another large bowl, combine crust ingredients. Stir vigorously
   with a wooden spoon about 30 seconds until a stiff dough forms.
    Spoon cream-cheese dough on top of cherry-kirsch filling to create a
   cobblestone effect. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until crust is golden
   brown. Cool 30 minutes; then serve with kirsch-flavored whipped cream.
   
    Makes 5 or 6 servings.
