My daughter is on cloud 9 today...Her favorite pie is cherry, so when she brought me home some cherries, I figured I better get her a pie made...my Aunt shared this recipe with me years ago and I finally got around to making my own...I changed things to my liking and it turned out beautiful! I think the crust makes a big different as well...I will add the link to the pie crust I always use, in the comments section of this recipe...

How to Make Fresh Cherry Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

    Prepare crust and chill until ready to use.

    Pit your cherries.
  2. In a bowl, toss the cherries with the lemon juice, tapioca, almond extract and vanilla; set aside for 30 minutes to give the cherries time to make some juice.
  3. Roll out your first crust for pie, place in pie plate.

    Pour in the cherry mixture and spread out evenly. Dot cherries with butter.
  4. Roll out the top pie crust a little larger than the bottom crust. Place top crust over cherries, fold top dough edges under bottom dough. Flute edges.

    I make an egg wash with one egg and a little water, and with a pastry brush, brush the crust and sprinkle with sugar...totally optional. Cut some slits in the top of crust.
  5. Cover edges of crust with 2 to 3 strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

    Bake for 50 - 55 minutes or until golden and juice begins bubbling through the slits in the crust. I then sprinkle with more sugar. ( Optional) I like how it looks with the sugar...Lol!
  6. Cool completely.

    Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
