      My 6 and 3 year old daughters helped with this pie from start to finish. It was a very easy recipe to do with them, and if was tasty, too. I was super impressed with how the filling didn't run. My crust was burned, even though I covered it after the first 20 minutes, so I believe I will cover it from the start next time. I loved the cinnamon and almond extract combo in this.

      This was wonderful! I used a crumb topping crust and it tasted just like the pies my mom and aunt would make when I was a child when we picked cherries from her cherry tree. I made it for my husband's family on Memorial Day and they said it was the best pie they had ever eaten. Thank You so much!
