The key to this classic All-American Cherry Pie is the hint of almond, and the flavorful, buttery and flaky pastry. Use fresh, frozen or jarred/canned cherries for this delicious sweet dessert.
Anna is quite the baker; her pies always look amazing, so I asked her to show me how to prepare the dough using tips for her perfect crust. I didn’t have to twist her arm. She knew that she would be rewarded with a delicious dessert at the end!
The filling is easy to make and takes only minutes to prepare. You can use either fresh, frozen, sweet and sour cherries, or cherries from a jar. I prefer the Zergut Pitted Sour Cherries in a jar, found in many local grocery stores, because the cherries are a perfect balance of sweet and tart and are also very flavorful. Morello Cherries in light syrup are also good to use.
This All-American Cherry Pie is delicious as a treat for your family or to serve to company!
