I don't bake many pies but cream pies and cherries are two of my favorite things. This pie is quick and easy, with cherry pie filling atop a creamy almond middle in a slivered almond crust. Cherries and almonds? That's a divine duo!

The almond crust is great. You get this unexpected surprise when you take a bite. The creaminess of the filling and the sweetness of the cherries is a great combination. And to top it off, this is a quick and easy pie to prepare. My kind of recipe. The Test Kitchen
