I used to use canned cherry pie filling until I found this recipe. I believe it came from an old Southern Living cook book. It is perfect! And better than any pie filling from a can! I like the basket weave crust a little better than the basic crust on top, you could also mix some butter, sugar and flour and do a crumb topping, whatever you prefer!

How to Make Home Made Cherry Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in medium saucepan; stir mixture to remove lumps. Stir water into sugar mixture.
