Give an amount that's generous (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

handsome

'generous' is the definition.
(similar in meaning)

'give an amount' is the wordplay.
'give' becomes 'hand' (synonyms).
'an amount' becomes 'some' ().
'hand'+'some'='HANDSOME'

'that's' is the link.

(Other definitions for handsome that I've seen before include "large", "Attractive, liberal", "beautiful", "Attractive in a strong, imposing way", "Good-looking or generous".)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
