Cherry Almond Pie Recipe at
Drain cherries, reserving 1 cup liquid.

Over medium heat, in a saucepan combine sugar, flour and salt. Stir in cherry juices and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Immediately reduce heat and simmer for 5-8 minutes until thickened.

When mixture is thickened, mix in butter, almond extract and cherries. Cool filling completely.

Place a large baking sheet in the oven and preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 9-inch pie pan with pastry and trim edge, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang.

Spoon cooled cherry filling into shell. Drape second pastry round over filled pie shell. Trim edges, leaving a ½-inch overhang. Press edges together and pinch/crimp decoratively to seal. Cut slits in pastry with a small sharp knife to allow steam to escape.

Bake pie, on hot baking sheet, in preheated oven for about 30 - 40 minutes or until filling bubbles though vents and pastry is golden brown. Cool pie to room temperature on a rack about 4 hours.
