How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.

Step 2

Combine flour, 1 1/2 tablespoons sweetener, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water and vinegar; toss with a fork until moist. Shape into a ball. Roll into a 14-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Place dough in a 10-inch pieplate; press against bottom and sides of plate. Flute edges.

Step 3

Drain cherries, reserving 1 1/4 cups liquid. Set cherries aside. Combine reserved cherry liquid, 1/2 cup sweetener, and cornstarch in a saucepan; stir well. Cook over medium heat until very thick, stirring constantly. Stir in cherries, cinnamon, and almond extract.

Step 4

Pour mixture into pastry shell. Shield pastry with foil, and bake at 400° for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°; bake, unshielded, 25 to 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
