Beth's Grandma's Cherry Pie...

Okay, so normally there's nothing but Stampin' Up! projects on this blog. But once in awhile something so wonderful comes along, I just have to share. Such is the case with a cherry pie made by my neighbor, Beth (jokingly biting into the pie).

We got to chatting recently about fruit in my yard. I said we'd never eaten the cherries on our tree because they were so sour. That's when she said she had an excellent recipe - with a secret ingredient - for cherry pie her grandma used to make.

Beth was kind enough to share the recipe here:

Beth's Grandma's Cherry Pie

Filling (9-inch pie): 1-1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 drops almond flavor (secret ingredient!)

Mix 4 cups of pitted cherries with the filling ingredients and pour into pie shell. Dot with 1-1/2 Tbsp butter and cover with top crust. Slit the top crust and bake at 425 degrees for 35-45 minutes, until brown.

Or you can go with a crumble top instead of crust - 2 Tbsp firm, packed brown sugar, 2 Tbsp butter, 1/4 cup flour - mixing until it's crumbly, then sprinkling it on top of the pie.

Delicious! Thanks for sharing, Beth.
