Cherry Pie

YEAH!  Summer is here!!!

It feels like I’ve been waiting FOR-EVER to share this Cherry Pie with you.  I always make it at Christmas but it’s the perfect Summer pie.  It’s so easy ANYONE can make it…really, even if you don’t think you can cook…THIS you can do.  Trust me!  You’re family will love it and be very impressed with you.  Buy a gallon of Homemade Vanilla Bluebell Ice Cream and people will sing your praises for days to come….or at least until the pie and ice cream are gone.

One reason it’s so quick and easy is the store bought crust.  Of all the things I make homemade, pie crust isn’t one one of them.  Just like Homemade Biscuits, it takes practice. Unfortunately, “practicing” pie making can be a very fattening venture.  So, I buy them from the store.

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 2 refrigerated pie crust (I buy the ones you put in the pan yourself – they’re better)
  • 1 can cherry pie filling – extra cherries if they have it (use a name brand)
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • egg white (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp sugar (optional)

Empty pie filling into large bowl and stir in extract

cherry pie 031

Place one pie crust in pie pan and “flute” edges

cherry pie 033

Pour filling into crust

cherry pie 037

Roll second crust onto lightly flour surface (or waxed paper)

Using knife or pizza cutter, cut into strips

Arrange strips on top of pie to form “lattice” look

Brush top with egg white and sprinkle with sugar

Bake at 350 degrees until crust is brown

Great for summer cookouts with friends or 4th of July picnics!
