7 steps
What you’ll need
3 cans
Tart cherries in water
.25 teaspoon
Salt
1.25 cups
Sugar
.5 teaspoon
Almond Extract
4 tablespoons
Corn Starch
In a small bowl, measure out 4 tablespoons of cornstarch
1
Add 1.5 cups of tart cherry juice to corn starch, whisk until no clumps
2
Add in the almond extract
3
With your burner on medium, pour in the liquid ingredients, and add 3 cans of cherries, stirring
4
In 3 or 4 pours, gently stir in the sugar, add the salt
5
Allow filling to simmer- the liquid should gel but the cherries should remain mostly whole
6
Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate until cool (hot filling will melt your pie dough)
