This was a delicious cherry filling! I could have eaten it with just a spoon (oh wait, I did!) I used the almond extract.
I am making cherry pies for Thanksgiving, and it was requested that the pies have more of the jelly then cherries. I happened upon this and because all I could find were frozen cherries, this was perfect. I added a little butter for a richer flavor and used the cinnamon seasoning from recipe 4861, to really make this pop. I will definitely make this again.
