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.

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
yellow cornmeal
1 Tbsp
all purpose flour
3 large
eggs, slightly beaten
grated zest and juice of 2 lemons
4 Tbsp
butter, unsalted, melted and cooled
1/2 c
heavy cream
1 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1/2 c
red sour pitted cherries
1 unbaked 9" pie shell

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
2
Combine the sugar, cornmeal, and flour in a bowl and stir until blended.
3
Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, butter, cream, and vanilla to mix until well blended.
4
Place the cherries in the bottom of the chilled, unbaked pie crust.
5
Pour 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.
6
Cool the pie completely on a baking rack before slicing.

OMG; good for you. Yes, God is good. Jim's appt. has now been rescheduled until December 6th. Physician has some emergencies and out of town for the holidays, etc. That might be better as I am off work for two weeks during the holidays and I can be home with him after they determine the date for his surgery.
