  • Drain cherries, reserving 1 cup liquid. Mix 1 cup sugar and corn starch in medium saucepan. Add cherries and reserved liquid; stir. Cook on medium-high heat 12 min. or until mixture comes to boil and thickens, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 min.; cool completely. Stir in extract.
  • Heat oven to 375ºF. Beat cream cheese and butter in large bowl with mixer until well blended. Gradually add flour, mixing well after each addition. (Mixture will be crumbly.) Shape into 2 balls; flatten slightly. Roll out half the dough on floured surface to 11-inch circle; place in 9-inch pie plate. Fill with cherry mixture.
  • Roll out remaining dough to 11-inch circle; cut into 10 (1/2-inch-wide) strips. Reserve remaining dough for garnish. Weave strips over filling to make lattice design. Fold edge of bottom crust over ends of strips. Cut remaining dough into shapes with small cookie cutters; arrange on pie. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until filling is hot and bubbly and crust is golden brown.

How to Prepare with Frozen Tart Cherries

Substitute 3-1/2 cups frozen tart cherries for the canned cherries. Thaw cherries; drain, reserving juice. Add enough water to reserved juice to measure 1 cup. Use to prepare filling as directed.

How to Prevent Crust from Overbrowning

To prevent the crust from becoming too brown while baking the pie, cover edge of crust with strips of foil or a pie ring for the last 5 to 10 min. of the baking time.

How to Make a Lattice-Top Pie Crust

Cut second pie crust into 10 (1/2-inch-wide) strips with pastry wheel or sharp knife. Place 5 of the strips over filling. Weave lattice crust with remaining strips by folding back alternate strips as each cross strip is added. Fold trimmed edge of lower crust over ends of strips. Seal and flute edge. Bake as directed.
