Well, I made this last week with several changes - I didn't have much time, so I used a thawed generic frozen pie crust, and 2 cans of cherry pie filling (one regular, one 'lite'). I emptied the cherries into a dish, and mixed in 2 sachets of Splenda. Then I mixed in the almond extract. I have never used almond extract in a cherry pie recipe before, and I was delighted at the taste! Superb! I made a lattice top for the pie using some pastry that was sitting in the freezer doing nothing, and baked it for 45 mins. Perfect! However, because Husband said he liked this a lot but would prefer it with fresh bing cherries, I made it again. Not surprisingly, he preferred the fresh. I thought it just tasted fruity, not cherry-ish. Ah well. It was good whatever. Great recipe. Thanks so much, Beth!
