Grandma's Cherry Pie
Luscious! Cherry pie is perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but taken "straight," it's still sublime. This is one of the best pies you can make. From an article on Cherry Pie for Your Valentine.
- Preheat oven to 425°F.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and undrained cherries. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils (about 6 or 7 minutes). Remove from heat and stir in almond extract.
- Pour mixture into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust, seal edges and crimp. If a lattice crust is not used, put one or several vents in the crust.
- Bake at 425°F for 30 to 35 minutes until crust is brown.
