Ingredients

Main ingredients

  • 1 1-pound (454-gram) bag frozen pitted cherries or fresh pitted cherries

  • 1/2–3/4 cup sugar or to taste

  • 1–2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup water, plus 2 tablespoons water 

Directions

Prepare the Filling

1.

Place cherries, sugar, lemon juice, and ¼ cup water in a medium-sized, heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to a boil; lower flame and simmer until cherries are soft.

2.

Dissolve cornstarch in two tablespoons water. Add a bit of the hot liquid to this and then add to the pot.

Stir constantly while returning to a boil. The mixture should thicken. Close flame. Add almond extract if desired. Allow to cool.
