Cherry Rice Salad

Do you ever go to a church potluck and instantly know who brought what? Or whose dish that casserole is in? I have been treated to this delicious salad since the early days of my marriage, thanks to one very sweet lady in our church. It's "her" salad, and a church function just wouldn't be complete without it. Once the first spoonful is gone, the rice just seems so pearly white! I hope you like this recipe as much as I do!

1 C. raw rice, cooked (not Minute Rice)
1/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. almond extract
8 oz. Cool Whip
1 can cherry pie filling

Mix hot cooked rice with sugar and almond extract; cool. Stir in Cool Whip and place in serving bowl. Top with pie filling and chill.
