I made only four. Two goes to our pie-eating friend and two will be put in the freezer. Eventually he may walk away with one of those too, because for now we are pied out, I already made a couple of cherry pies last week.

2 cups fresh or frozen cherries
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter
1 beaten egg yolk and 1 Tbsp sugar

• Place the cherries in a medium sized bowl
• Add the sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon, and mix to combine.
• Line a 9-inch pie plate with pie pastry.
• Pour the fruit mixture into the pie shell.
• Dot the top with butter.
• Cut the remaining dough into 3/4” strips.
• Lay the strips down in a weave fashion
• Crimp the edges of the pie.
• Glaze the pastry with the egg yolk wash.
• Sprinkle with sugar.
• Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes.
• Reduce heat to 350F and bake for 25 minutes longer.

  3. Thank you ladies! And Elisabeth, gladly!
