  7. 1. Line a 9-inch pie plate with half of the pie dough; refrigerate until time to use.

  8. 2. In a saucepan, mix together the cherries, sugar, flour, and almond extract. Bring the mixture to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring. Cool to room temperature.

  9. 3. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Brush the chilled bottom crust with egg white. Spoon the cooled cherry filling into the crust. Cover the filling with top crust. Trim the excess dough, leaving a 1-inch overhang. With water, moisten the rims of the top and bottom crusts where they meet, then turn the top crust under the bottom and crimp the edges decoratively. Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

  10. 4. Bake for 35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
