Cherry Pie Filling

Heat the cherries over medium-low heat in a saucepan and cover. Cherries will lose considerable juice after a few minutes, so remove from heat quickly.
Mix together sugar and cornstarch in small bowl; pour over hot cherries, blend well. Mix in almond extract.
Cook over low heat until thickened, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat; let cool.
