Tart Cherry Pie

It's cherry season in Michigan and that means cherry pie! The boys and I pick every summer, and this is my official pie recipe. This recipe fits in my deep dish pie plate.-Sarah

1 1/2 recipes pie crust (on blog)

1/4 cup sugar
2 T. flour

5 cups washed and pitted sour cherries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 t. almond flavoring
1/4 t. salt
  • Place cherries in a bowl and add remaining ingredients. If cherries are frozen let them thaw with the other ingredients, and it will form a syrup.
  • Make pie crust. Mix the 1/4 cup sugar and 2 T. flour, spread over the bottom crust. Top with cherries and cover with top crust.
  • Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30-40 minutes longer. (Make sure the filling bubbles and thickens before taking it out of the oven)
