    ½ c. Hy-Vee dried cherries, chopped
    ½ tsp. grated lemon peel
    ¼ tsp. almond extract
    1 (15 oz) box Hy-Vee ready-to-bake pie crusts
    ¼ c. Hy-Vee sliced almonds
    1 large egg
    2 tbsp. milk

    4. Spread cherry filling onto pie crust to within 1 inch of edge. Sprinkle filling with sliced almonds.
