1recipe for single-crust pie doughIzy offers oat or olive oil pie dough options, but I went with my standard all-butter dough I had in the freezer - link in post
1lbpitted sour or regular cherries
6tbspgranulated sugaruse 5 if regular cherries
3 1/2tbspunsalted buttersoftened
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Roll out the pie dough between sheets of parchment paper to 1/8" thickness in a rectangle about the same size as your baking sheet.
To make the frangipane, cream the sugar and butter until smooth (I used a stand mixer). Mix in the egg, ground almonds, flour, salt and almond extract. Spread the mixture over the dough, leaving a 1 1/4" border around the edges.
Toss the cherries with the sugar and lay over top of frangipane, then fold over the border of the dough. Bake for about 50 minutes, until bubbling with a golden crust
