How to make it

  • 1. Heat oven to 350°F. Have ready a 9-in. pie plate.
  • 2. Fit 1 crust into pie plate. Unroll or unfold remaining crust on a cutting board; cut in 1/2-in.-wide strips. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate.
  • 3. Mix sugar and cornstarch in a medium bowl. Add cream cheese; beat with mixer on medium speed until smooth. On low speed, beat in egg and extract until just blended.
  • 4. Spread batter evenly in crust; spoon pie filling evenly over top. Beat egg white with a fork until foamy. Brush on pastry strips. Arrange about 8 strips evenly spaced across pie filing. Place 8 more strips diagonally over first strips to form a lattice (discard remaining strips). Trim and press ends to bottom crust. Brush rim with egg white; press on almonds.
  • 5. Bake 50 to 60 minutes until crust is golden brown and cherries bubble. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm, at room temperature or cold.
  • Planning Tip: Can be baked up to 4 days ahead. Refrigerate covered.

    I've never seen this before, love the sound of it...I agree with Trigger; flaky crust, cherry/cheesecake all in one. Thanks for a great post!
