FRESH CHERRY PIE RECIPE



Pastry for a 2-crust

pie

4 cups tart red cherries

2 2/3 tablespoons quick-cooking

tapioca

1 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 tablespoon

lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon almond extract

1 1/2 tablespoons butter



Prepare pastry and line a 9-inch pie pan. Save remaining pastry for top and refrigerate both while you make the filling.



Pit cherries and toss thoroughly with tapioca, sugar, lemon juice and almond extract. Let stand about 10 minutes, then pour into unbaked pie shell and

dot with butter. Cover with top crust (or make a lattice top) and seal edges. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes.



Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes. Enjoy.
