LEMON CHESS PIE WITH SOUR CHERRIES
By Jewel Hall 0124
This is a recipe from The Foster's Market Cookbook, their specialty is cherries. I really like Chess Pie and though I haven't tried this recipe the picture is awesome. I have been looking for Sour Cherry Recipes. There is a tree between me and my next door neighbor. It's beautiful when it blooms then the red cherries are lovely when pulling into my drive. I froze some of the cherries and am wanting to use them. I've never cooked much with Sour Cherries but did make cobblers in the spring this year. I believe this recipe would be very tasty and attractive to look at.
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
eggs, slightly beaten
grated zest and juice of 2 lemons
butter, unsalted, melted and cooled
pure vanilla extract
red sour pitted cherries
1 unbaked 9" pie shell
1Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2Combine the sugar, cornmeal, and flour in a bowl and stir until blended.
3Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, cream, and vanilla to mix until well blended.
4Place the cherries in the bottom of the chilled, unbaked pie crust.
5Pour the filling on top of the cherries. Bake 50-55 minutes, or until top is golden brown and a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
6Cool the pie completely on a baking rack before slicing.
