How to Make Homemade Cherry Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • 2Drain cherries, reserving one cup of the juice from the cherries. Set aside.
  • 3In a medium sauce pan, add 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Mix together well, removing any lumps. Add cherry juice and stir. Cook over medium heat until smooth and thickened.
  • 4Remove from heat and gently fold in cherries, 1/2 cup sugar, butter, almond extract and food coloring. Pour into bottom pie shell. Place pie shell on top, sealing and crimping edges.
  • 5Brush pie crust with milk and sprinkle with raw sugar. Cut a few small slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Cover sealed edges with strips of aluminum foil to prevent over-baking.
  • 6Put pie in preheated oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream if desired.
