I bet that almond flavoring is what makes this cherry pie so out of the world good. I think almond extract makes everything taste better! I've been searching for a quick and easy cherry pie recipe and also a strawberry pie one for awhile now. I'll have to give this one a try and then search for a good strawberry pie recipe. Any suggestions?
