For the previous couple of weeks I have shared recipes using fruit we picked up though on our way dwelling from trip. We definitely appreciated the clean fruit, and I’ve actually liked baking sweet treats to use them up.
Today’s recipe for Cherry Pie II caught my eye on the all-recipes.com world-wide-web-site due to the fact it had so couple of substances in it. Uncomplicated more than enough! The photo that accompanied the article confirmed the pie with a lattice top rated. I never imagine I’ve at any time built a pie with a lattice leading, but I was inclined to give it a consider.
I have a very good handmade pie crust recipe so I just geared up it twice. The initially crust went into the pie plate then I rolled out the next just one on waxed paper. I rolled it out on waxed paper for the reason that I was afraid if I rolled it out on a floured counter leading I wouldn’t be capable to get the individual items of lattice off of the counter and onto the pie. Once the next crust was rolled out I slice it into strips, leaving them on the waxed paper though I well prepared the pie filling.
The cherries ended up presently pitted and sitting in a medium bowl (keep in mind last 7 days, I built the sour cherry muffins and this pie all on the exact day). So all I experienced to do was incorporate the sugar, flour, and salt to the cherries and give them a very good toss to coat them. I poured the cherry filling into the pie crust and at this point I did not believe it appeared like there were being really numerous cherries in this pie, but I employed what the recipe identified as for. I slash up the tablespoon of butter and dropped it on prime of the sugar-coated cherries.
All I had to do now was weave the lattice prime. Less difficult explained than finished. The very first strip I got off of the waxed paper crumbled so I tried out to pat it back again jointly and decided I would not use it until I had to. The future one particular came off of the waxed paper but tore. I utilized it anyway. Lastly, following a lot aggravation, the lattice strips were on the pie and they had been woven. Not extremely quite, but it was finished.
The pie didn’t appear like it would gain any awards for natural beauty, but I was additional concerned about the taste of the total matter.
When I put the pie in to bake I slid a cookie sheet on to the rack underneath, just in situation it bubbled in excess of. I didn’t want to clear up a sticky mess in the oven.
Soon after baking the suggested time I taken out the pie from the oven and to my surprise it seemed really excellent – not stunning, but pretty very good.
When it was time to give it a attempt Brad and I each individual experienced a slice. Of study course, I experienced to add vanilla ice product. What is fruit pie devoid of ice cream, proper?
I’ll say we equally imagined the pie was a winner. The only complaint I have is that there weren’t more than enough cherries in it.
Mainly because I nailed it, this pie recipe has been additional to my self-made cook e-book, but with a facet note that to double the cherries the other filling ingredients.
