Directions:

In a small saucepan, combine juices, sugar and cornstarch. Cook over low heat until thick and clear, stirring often. Add cherries, raspberries and almond extract. Pour into pie shell. Cover with the other pie shell and seal edges. Make small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape. Bake at 450° F. for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° F and continue baking 25 – 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
