Cherry Pie Recipe

Hello All! I thought I would share this with you! ;) On Monday night our kind neighbour gave us some cherries, they had bought up in Door County. We readily accepted. So, on Tuesday night Anna decided to make a CHERRY PIE! She ended up making the pie crust, and spaghetti for supper, and I making the cherry filling. So, this is the amazingly good recipe!

Sweet Cherry Pie
1 pie crust
3 cups of fresh, or canned cherries, pitted
1/4 cup. sugar
2. 1/2 Tbsp. quick cooking Tapioca
2 Tbsp. butter

Preheat, the oven to 425. Line a pie pan with half the pastry dough. Drain the cherries, saving 1/2 cup of juice. *If using fresh cherries, the natural juices, which bubble up when baking are sufficient.* Mix juice, sugar, and tapioca in a bowl, add the cherries, and toss well. Pile into the lined pan and dot with the butter, Roll out the top crust and drape over the pie. (Note, I didn't use the top pie crust, I made a crumble, I will write the recipe in a minute) Crimp the edges and cut several vents in the top. Bake for 10 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 F, continue to bake for 30-4o minutes more, until the crust is lightly browned.

The Crumble
1 cup. of flour
1 cup. of oats
1 cup. of brown sugar
1/2. cup of butter

Mix your dry ingredients together. Cut in your butter. Pour over your pie...bake...then it tastes really good!

Looks delicious! Were it possible, I honestly think I could live off of cherry pie--I love it that much. ;D Thanks for sharing!

Oh, Kara, you are cruel to post such yumdidiliumptious photos! Save me a piece...I'm coming over to claim it.


p.s. Tapioca sounds like some sort of tropical orange-colored drink sipped in sun chairs on a Hawaiian beach.

:D It was really good...maybe we can make you some.

Tapioca, is NOT a tropical drink...its like a pudding, when completely made, but this is just like big grains of white thin stuff...(bad way of describing I know!)


See ya!
