The magnificent flavors of cherry and almond marry in a quick-to-prepare pie.
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
oz marzipan (about 1/3 cup)
tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
cup old-fashioned oats
tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cans (21 oz each) cherry pie filling
teaspoon almond extract
Heat oven to 375°F. Make 1 pie crust as directed on box for One-Crust Baked Shell using 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or just until set but not brown.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, place marzipan and butter; with pastry blender or fork, mix until well blended. Stir in oats and flour until crumbly. In large bowl, mix filling ingredients.
Remove partially baked shell from oven. Spread filling in shell. Crumble topping over filling.
Bake 30 to 40 minutes longer or until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly around edges. If necessary, after 15 minutes of baking, cover edge of crust with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.
Marzipan is a mixture of almond paste, sugar and egg whites. It adds a crumbly texture and almond flavor to the pie topping.
Look for marzipan and almond paste in the baking section of the grocery store.
