If you are using canned cherry pie filling you can skip this step.

Thaw frozen cherries and drain syrup.  Place 3/4 drained syrup in pan with 1/4 cup sugar and heat until sugar dissolves.  Add 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch to remaining syrup and then add to hot syrup.  Continue heating and stirring until mixture starts to thicken.  Over medium heat add cherries and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract.  Cook 3-5 minutes.
