Baked Fresh Cherry Pie
Fabulous Recipe! I've been using this recipe for years now and have always gotten compliments on this pie! If you like almond, feel free to double the almond extract, it is delicious.
A few hints: Taste your cherries! If they are sweet, 1 C sugar is more than enough, if not, you may need to double the sugar; If you don't have a cherry pitter, use a plastic straw; if you don't have tapioca then just leave it out, all the other thickener subs make it taste funny; put a pinch of sugar into your sweet pie crusts, it ties the filling and crust together better; Use 1/2 crisco and 1/2 butter in your pie crusts, makes it easier to handle and helps it from getting tough if you overmix the crust; When greasing/spraying the pie dish, grease underneath the rim so when the pie drips in comes off easier
