Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Dash salt
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen pitted tart cherries, thawed
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter

Directions

  1. Press pastry onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom; trim edges.
  2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Stir in cherries; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in extract. Pour into crust.
