This recipe is filled with flavour. The pie crust is filled with cherry pie filling, then topped with almonds and coconut. It’s the perfect bite every time!
This lovely recipe was the bomb. I mean this little pie rocked my world. It’s easy to make, it’s delish, and it has cherry and coconut in it, which in my book is like heaven.
I had eyed this recipe awhile back. I stumbled upon it on a food site. So kudos and acknowledgement go to the Pillsbury site for their recipe for Almond Macaroon Cherry Pie.
This was the bake off winner in 1986 and the winner’s name is Rose LeMon. I just had to try this one. I only made one change to it. I added coconut extract to it.
If I make it again I’d be inclined to lose the almonds. Not sure my hubby would be on board with that though. He’s an almond lover.
I just loved it but think I would like it better with just coconut. But then I’m a coconut fiend, so there you go.
So try the original, or try it without almonds, or try it without coconut. Just try it. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

Hope you love this. We sure did.
I am in love with any recipes that incorporate cherry with coconut. I’ve made cherry cake pops before which were amazing. I’ve also whipped up chocolate granola with dried cherries, almonds and coconut. I’ve also made coconut whipped cream and cherry parfaits. Love those way too much.
Any chance I get to put them together I jump at. This recipe was totally worth the leap of faith. Jump in and try it yourself.
