this cherry pie is by far the best i have ever tasted and my family agrees. the slight hint of almond makes such a difference in the taste. it reminds me of my mothers cherry pie from long ago. this is definitely a keeper. my compliments to culinary judge. yummy.. George Washington would be proud.

Whoa... this pie is awesome! I made it for Father's Day, by request, and he was very pleased. He claimed it was the best cherry pie he has ever had! :) Thanks for posting. BTW, I added 1/2 tsp. of almond extract and it turned out great.
