This makes a very yummy cherry pie. I've made it twice now - once with frozen cherries and once with fresh. Both turned out great. Instead of using a pie crust on top, I used a streusel topping like you would use on top of a crisp or crumnle. Wonderful served with vanilla ice cream.


Dried cherries were hard to find, but the search was well-rewarded--this pie is excellent! The almond extract makes it not-your-ordinary pie. The only drawback is that the pie didn't hold together very well when cut...perhaps I should have let it cool, but the troops were clamoring! A great Thanksgiving pie alternative!


The store was out of frozen cherries so I substituted canned pitted tart cherries packed in water, which I drained. I also added lemon juice and used the Pillsbury pie crusts because I was in a hurry. This was an excellent pie and so easy. We served it with Breyer's vanilla bean ice cream and had no leftovers. I'll definitely make this again!
