Ingredients
  • 5 to 6 cups fresh pitted cherries, about 2½ to 3 pounds
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract, optional
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cherries, water, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch.
  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes.
  3. If using, stir in almond extract. Cool slightly before using as a topping.
NOTES
  1. If using sour cherries, you will need to adjust the amount of sugar. I’d recommend starting about ¾ cup and working your way up if more sweetness is needed.
  2. Refrigerate leftover fresh cherry pie filling in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
  3. This recipe freezes beautifully.
