The USDA's Food and Nutrition Service says this recipe will yield the "Best Cherry Pie."

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cans red tart cherries. (Drain and reserve juice.)
  • 1/4 tsp red food coloring (Optional)
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract (Optional)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • Pastry for double-crust 9-inch pie

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  2. In a saucepan, combine sugar and flour
  3. Blend in 1 cup of the reserved cherry juice. Bring to boil, stirring often. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, until thickened.
  4. Remove from heat, and add food coloring (optional), almond extract (optional) and margarine. Cover and refrigerate.
  5. Roll out half of pastry and live a 9-inch pie pan.
  6. Roll out other half of pastry into an 11-inch circle. Cut into eight 1/2-inch strips.
