This cherry pie recipe has been passed down through several generations in our family.  It can be traced back to at least my husband's great great grandma.

Cherry Pie filling

2 cups drained and pitted sour pie cherries (either fresh, frozen - thawed, or canned) reserve liquid

1 cup sugar
1/8 tsp salt
4 tbs cornstarch
1/8 tsp allspice

1/2 cup juice drained from cherries (add water if not enough juice)
1/4 tsp almond extract
You can add a few drops of red food coloring to get a nicer color if desired.

Mix all dry together.  Then in separate bowl, mix all wet together.  Then add the wet to the dry.  Mix well and then fold in cherries gently.

Put in unbaked pie shell and cover with second pastry or lattice.  Be sure to flute the rim to avoid boil overs.  Dot top of pastry with bits of butter (about 1 Tbl)

Bake at 425F for 45 minutes or until pie is boiling.  You may wish to line the bottom of oven to catch drips.

This recipe comes from my paternal grandmother


Pistachio Nut Cake

Combine:
1 pkg yellow cake mix
1 pkg pistachio pudding
4 eggs

Then beat in:
1 cup gingerale or club soda
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup oil

Bake in bundt pan or angel food pan.  350F for 40 minutes.

It's good plain or with a light icing drizzled over the top.

I'm looking for a tried and true pie crust. Something easy and preferrably made with butter instead of shortening. Thanks :)
