I was going to suggest that--use the extract slowly and see where it takes you. I wouldn't use almond only because I don't care for Amaretto or almond extract--I'd probably stick with vanilla, and I'll bet it'll still be great! I LOVE ANYTHING CHERRY! Can't wait to try this! Congrats on the feature!

Ladies:
I only cook w/ the liqueurs b/c they offer a MUCH more subtle flavor. I do think it makes a real difference, lightens the flavor of the canning. If you want, add the extract instead of the Amaretto one teaspoon at a time and see where your taste buds agree its balanced. I think you may not realize just how much filling there is, so don't knock it 'til you try it...
