Easy to throw together from pantry staples & those random tart cherries I don't remember why I bought. Whatever the reason, DH was delighted I used them for this. I did add almond flavoring simply because I like the flavor with cherries. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
This was very good, but I think if I make it again I would add 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract to enhance the flavor, and a few drops of red food coloring to brighten the color of the filling. We usied fresh picked tart cherries. I also had problems with the filling leaking under the crust, so be sure you build the sides up high enough to avoid this problem.
Divine! We had fresh picked cherries and needed a recipe. Boy, did we pick the right one :) The only mistake we made was not pushing the crust up high enough on the sides, as the filling stuck to the pie pan, but we'll know for next time. My 7yo daughter gave it 2 thumbs up. The 3 adults that were sampling it couldn't wait 2 hours to try it. The pie set up nicely after 60 minutes cooling time. We also ate it for breakfast the next morning. Thanks for posting - this one's a keeper!
AMAZING!! One of our friends made this for us, and we absolutely devoured it. The crust is to die for, and the topping adds a delicious crisp touch. We quickly requested the recipe and will be making it again and again!
