How to Make Very Cherry Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine flour and salt. Add shortening about a 1/4 cup at a time, and mash with a fork until mixed. Add the cold water as needed so it doesn't stick but holds together. You want the crust to resemble cookie crumbs.
    Roll into a ball, cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for an hr.
  2. Combine cherries, sugar, cherry juice, and butter in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil while stirring so the sugar does not burn.
  3. Once it boils, reduce heat to simmer and leave for 20 min. Remove from heat set aside. Stir in Extract.
  4. Take pie crust out of the fridge and let it sit for 15 min. Divide the dough ball into 2. Gently roll out one ball and place in a prepared pie pan. Cover the edges with foil so they do not burn. Bake at 375 in a preheated oven for 20 min. Remove from oven.
  5. Fill pie crust with cherry filling. Roll out 2nd dough ball. You can do a lattice top or a solid top really whatever you like just cover it with something. Brush with the egg and 1 T of water mixed together.
    Bake at 375 for 50 min or until set up. We enjoy ours with Vanilla Ice cream but whipped cream is also delicious! Enjoy!
