Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 425 degrees

3In a medium sauce pan, add 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Mix together well, removing any lumps. Add cherry juice and stir. Cook over medium heat until smooth and thickened.
4Remove from heat and gently fold in cherries, 1/2 cup sugar, butter, almond extract and food coloring. Pour into bottom pie shell. Place pie shell on top, sealing and crimping edges.
5Brush pie crust with milk and sprinkle with raw sugar. Cut a few small slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Cover sealed edges with strips of aluminum foil to prevent over-baking.
6Put pie in preheated oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream if desired.
