i love summer, it's fruit season
here in the northwest.
right now, in time for the 4th of july
the cherries are a ready for picking.
this of course brings me to thinking
about cherry pie.
it seems like the appropriate dessert
for this coming holiday weekend.
1 quart sour cherries
1 cupful granulated sugar
1/8 tspn salt
few drops almond extract
3 Tblspn flour
Line a pie plate with pastry.
Mix together the sugar, salt and flour.
Spread half of it over the pastry.
Wash and pit the cherries and fill the pie plate with them.
Sprinkle the almond extract and remaining sugar mixture
over the cherries.
Wet the lower crust around the edge
and put the upper crust in position.
Bake at 450F for fifty minutes.
