Cherry pie is one of the easiest pies to make

one usually just dumps a can or two of cheery pie filling into a shell, top it with another crust and bake.
It is also the prettiest pie when the top crust has a woven top to it and the red juices bubble through.
This pie is just as easy ............but the top crust is different, but oh so very easy!........and tasty!

Cherry Crumble Pie
2 can of cherry pie filling
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)
1 regular pie crust

Top Crust Recipe
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cu flour
6 TBS. margarine
Set oven at 425. Prepare single pastry for pie or used store brand.
Mix almond extract into pie filling and pour pie filling into pastry.

Top Crust
Mix sugar, flour, and margarine together with pastry blender until resembles crumbs. Sprinkle evenly on top of pie filling. Bake pie at 425 for 35 to 40 minutes until crust is brown and pie is bubbly. Enjoy!
