Another Baking Day

Cherry Pie! Homemade from frozen Colorado tart cherries. I remembered to take a photo before eating all of it. Not that "I" am the person who eats all of the pies. I do have a bit of help...

Cherry Pie

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
4 teaspoons butter
3 cups tart cherries
1/4-1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Stir together sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour water over cherries and add almond extract. Pour dry mixture over cherries and stir. Pour into 9-inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and crimp. Put one or two vents in the crust. Bake on lowest shelf for 30 to 35 minutes.


Cover with strips weaving into a lattice. Bake the same temperature and time.

OR do what I do:

Roll out that bottom crust way larger than needed for the pie plate. Center in 9-inch pie plate. Pour cherries into shell. Dot with butter. Fold edges of crust over filling. Bake at the same temperature and time.
