Ingredients
  • 2 pie crusts
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 c cherry juice from can or jar of cherries
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 3 T flour
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 c pitted cherries
  • 2 pie crusts
  • 1 c heavy whipping cream
  • 2 T granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t almond extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. In saucepan, heat cherry juice and sugar until simmering.
  3. Whisk in flour dusted from a mesh strainer quickly until all dissolved and mixture has thickened.
  4. Remove from heat and mix in salt and butter.
  5. Lay first pie crust out in pie plate. Place cherries on pie crust, pour cherry juice mixture over cherries. Top with pie crust topping of choice.
  6. Bake pie at 450' for 10 minutes.
  7. Turn temperature down to 350' and bake for 30 more minutes. As soon as the crust turns a golden color, place strips of foil or pie shield over edges to prevent browning too much before pie has baked. Remove from oven and let cool at least 5 hours.
  8. Make whipping cream right before serving by beating cream with sugar and almond extract until stiff peaks form.
