  1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Divide dough in half so that one ball is slightly larger than the other. Roll out larger ball to fit a 7-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge.
  2. For filling, combine sugar with cornstarch in a microwave-safe bowl. Drain cherries and reserve 2 tablespoons juice. Stir in cherries; reserved juice, lemon juice and almond extract. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened, stirring occasionally. Pour into crust. Dot with butter.
  3. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Flute edges. Cut slits in pastry. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 25-30 minutes longer or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Delicious! I did double it and used 2 Deep Dish Marie Calendar crusts. The original recipe only serves 4 and is a 7 inch so doubling was perfect for a larger crowd. Everyone wanted the recipe!

I used a heaping two cups of fresh cherries. The filling took a little longer than 2 minutes in the microwave to get thick. I used my own homemade pie crust and a small pie pan. The filling w...

Good easy recipe, but I had to triple it to make enough for a 9" pie.

I am not a big fan of tart cherry pie, but I loved this recipe. I made it for a 9-inch pie dish so I had to use 3 cans of cherries. This is also excellent by adding 1-2 tablespoons of pomegranat...
