Grandma’s Cherry Pie

INGREDIENTS
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1-1/3 tablespoons butter (about 4 teaspoons)
1 14.5-ounce can pie cherries, NOT cherry pie filling (look for Dark Sweet Pitted Cherries packed in water)
Pastry for double-crust pie

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 425°F.
In saucepan, combine 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 using a lattice crust, allow filling to cool before applying it. If a lattice crust is not used, put one or several vents in the crust ( I cut bird-tracks /\ /\ /\ forming a cross on top of my pies, because my mom always did). Bake at 425°F for 30 to 35 minutes until crust is golden brown.

Prep time: 25 minutes; Cooking time: 30-35 minutes; Total time: 55 minutes

*Crimping is done by pushing the outside edge of our pie crust between your pointer finger and thumb on your left hand using the tip of the pointer finger on your right hand. <- repeating all the way around the pie, then cut off the excess pie dough with a sharp knife.
