Ingredients
  • 10 1/3 cups pitted sour cherries
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 5 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon tapioca
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure almond extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 homemade or store-bought rounds of pie dough
Directions
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cherries, sugar, tapioca, butter, lemon juice, almond extract and salt. Transfer 2 rounds of pie dough to two 9-inch pie tins. Divide the cherry mixture between the crusts. Cover the pies with the remaining 2 rounds of dough (in a lattice pattern, if desired). Sprinkle the pie crusts with water, and then with some sugar. Chill the pies in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before baking.

  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

  • Place the pies on baking sheets and transfer to the oven. Bake about 5 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F and continue baking until the filling bubbles and the crust is golden brown, about 45 minutes. Cool the pies on wire rack at least 2 hours before slicing. Store at room temperature up to 2 days.
