Single-crust pie

2 – 14.5 oz. cans pitted tart cherries

2/3 C. granulated sugar

3 ½ T Clabber Girl® Corn Starch

¼ tsp. Spice Islands® Ground Allspice



  • 1 large egg, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp. 2% or whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp. butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp. Spice Islands® Pure Almond Extract
  • 1/4  C. granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F

  5. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine first 6 topping ingredients. Stir in coconut and almonds.
