In a large bowl, combine sugar and flour; stir in cherries and extract. Line a 9-inch pie plate with bottom pastry; trim to 1 inch beyond edge of plate. Pour filling into crust. Dot with butter.

Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cover edges loosely with foil.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Remove foil. Cool on a wire cooling rack.
