1/4 cup instant tapioca
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 tsp almond extract
15-oz pkg ready-to-use refrigerated pie crusts
1 tbs butter
1-1/4 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
Preheat oven to 400°. Toss cherries with sugar, tapioca, lemon juice and almond extract until evenly coated. Let stand 15 min. Stir.
Prepare pie crust as directed on package for 2-crust pie, using 9-inch pie plate. Fill with fruit mixture. Dot with butter. Cover with remaining pie crust. Seal and flute edge. Cut several slits in top crust to allow steam to escape.
