Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). On a lightly floured surface, roll out one crust, and place in a 9 inch deep dish pie plate. Roll out top crust, and set aside.
  2. Measure 1 1/2 cups reserved cherry syrup into a small saucepan over low heat. Mix together sugar, arrowroot powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir into syrup until dissolved. Increase heat to high, and bring syrup to a boil. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until thickened. Remove from heat, and stir in butter, lemon juice, vanilla, almond extract, and red food coloring.
  3. In a large bowl, combine cherries and thickened syrup. Gently toss until evenly coated. Pour filling into pie crust. Cover with top crust, and crimp edges with fork. Make a few fork vents in top pie crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Continue to bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool for 3 hours before serving.

This pie was very delicious, but a little too tart for my taste! The vanilla ice cream definitely made it sweeter! Overall, it was a very good dish! :)

I only used the filling part b/c I was making a dump cake and opted for sour cherries from a jar and I had to thicken the juice. I don't recommend boiling the mixture for 1-2 minutes; as soon as it comes to a boil you can turn off the heat, otherwise it will come out rather "gluey." Turned out OK in the recipe though!
