Step 1

Place one crust in a 9" pie plate; set aside. Drain cherries, reserving
juice. Measure 1/2 cup juice, adding water if necessary to equal 1/2 cup. Pour juice into a large saucepan. Whisk in sugar, salt and flour. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and glossy. Stir in remaining ingredients except garnish; spoon mixture into crust. Add remaining crust; flute edges and vent with a knife tip.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Continue baking 40 to 45 minutes, until bubbly and golden. Top each slice with a scoop of ice cream.

Makes 8 servings.
