    Dorel's Note:

    This recipe is from an old cookbook from about 1960. You can add almond extract or Kirsch to the filling if you like almond flavoring. I usually add about a tablespoon of Kirsch. This makes 2- 9" pies. You could half the recipe.

      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.
