She’s my cherry pie,
Cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise.
Tastes so good, make a grown man cry,
Sweet cherry pie.

Cherry Pie

  • 2 cups sour pie cherries, pitted and with their own juice
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 pie crusts

In a saucepan, heat cherries and sugar until sugar is melted. Remove 3 tbsp of cherry juice and whisk into it the all purpose flour, being sure to get out all the lumps. Stir the flour/juice mixture back into the cherries and heat until the filling starts to thicken.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a glass pie plate, place the first layer of crust. Pur pie filling into the crust. Top with second crust in desired fashion. I did a lattice but if you dont want to take that time, you could just cut a small design (this allows the steam to escape). Wrap a thin edge of foil over the pie crust edges and place into oven. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil from edges and place back in oven. Bake for another 10 minutes or until the crust is nicely browned. When you remove the pie, be careful because sloshing pie filling onto your skin would result in a killer burn. Allow to cool some before serving with ice cream or enjoy in it’s simplicity.
