Number of Servings: 8


    3/4 cup butter flavored Crisco
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup ice water
    about 2 cups flour

    3/4 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons cornstarch
    2 14.5 oz. cans tart cherries, no added sugar
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Crust: Place Crisco, water,and salt in food processor. Add enough flour to make a ball when processed. Divide into 2 balls.
Roll out one ball on a lightly floured paper. Place in pie dish and place in freezer for 10 minutes. Roll out other ball and cut into slices to make a crisscross top.

Filling: Drain the cherries, but reserve the juice from one can. Combine the sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Stir in the juice. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat and gently stir in extract and cherries. Pour into pastry-lined pie pan. Top with crust strips in a crisscross pattern. Seal strips and bottom crust. If desired, brush strips with a little milk and sprinkle with a little sugar.

Bake 30-40 minutes, or until crust browns and filling bubbles. If necessary, cover edges with foil to prevent burning. Cool pie for several hours before slicing.
