  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons Pillsbury BEST™ All Purpose Flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans red sour pitted cherries, drained, 1/4 cup liquid reserved
  • Few drops red food coloring
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half or milk
Preparation Directions
  • Step 1Prepare as directed. Do not bake. Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Step 1In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour and salt; add reserved 1/4 cup cherry juice and red food coloring, if desired. Stir until blended. Add cherries.
  • Step 2Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter and almond extract.
  • Step 3Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. Roll out top crust. Using 1-1/2-inch star cutter, cut 3 stars in center of crust. Place top crust over filling; trim and seal. Roll out leftover scraps to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into star garnishes. Place on crust as desired.
