Cherries--What to do?? Results

It took me a little while to pit 4+ cups of the little cherries, I can say now that I have mastered the art of pitting with a tooth pick.

My pies never look the greatest going into the oven.

Right out of the oven.  The smell is amazing.

The test is in the tasting!!
We have a winner

Betty Crocker Fresh Cherry Pie
9" Pie
Pastry for Two Crust Pie
1 1/3 Cup Sugar
1/3 to 1/2 Cup Flour
4 Cups Fresh Pitted Cherries
1/2 Teaspoon Almond Extract
2 Tablespoons Butter
Heat Oven to 425 degrees.  Prepare pastry.  Stir together sugar and flour, mix with cherries.  Turn into pastry-lined pie pan, sprinkle with almond extract and dot with butter.  Cover with top crust which has slits cut into it, seal and flute.  Cover edge with 2 to 3 inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil lasts 15 minutes of baking.

Bake 8 - 9" pies 35 to 45 minutes, 10- inch pie 40-50 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust.
