This may be one of my favorite pies. It’s sweet plus a little tart in a flaky crust. I’m using my homemade pie crust here, but feel free to buy premade pie crust to make it simpler.

Cherry Pie Filling

  • 2 (14oz) cans of Oregon Red Tart pitted cherries in water, drained
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp plus 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the cherries, sugar, and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat while stirring constantly. Once boiling, decrease the heat to low and simmer for one minute, or until thickened and translucent. Remove from heat. Stir in butter.

Allow the filling to cool, and pour into a prepared pie crust. Cover with a top crust, or a lattice style crust. Bake for 50 minutes.

Super yummy as is, or top with homemade whipped cream or ice cream for an extra treat!
