In medium saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; add cherries. Cook and stir on medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in butter, extracts, and food color. Let stand for 1 hour at room temperature.
Preheat oven to 375°. In medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Add egg and vinegar; stir until dough forms a ball. Divide into thirds. On floured surface, roll each third out to 1/8-inch thickness. Line pie plate; trim edges even with plate. Turn cherry filling into pastry-lined plate.
On second pastry circle, cut out the word “Ohio” and a shape of the state. Moisten edges of pastry in plate. Lift second pastry circle onto filling. Trim 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold top edge under bottom crust, flute edges. Brush top of pie with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake 35–40 minutes, or until golden brown.
With third pastry circle, cut out 3-inch shapes of the state of Ohio; cut small hole in center of each. Bake 5–8 minutes or until golden brown; cool. To serve pie, place maraschino cherry piece in each hole. Place cutout on toothpick; insert in each piece of pie.
