Cherry Pie Recipe

A traditionally delicious treat is a slice of this pretty cherry pie.—Frances Poste, Wall, South Dakota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Bake: 55 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • PASTRY:
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) tart cherries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Red food coloring, optional
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out one portion. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge.
  • 2. Drain cherries, reserving 1/4 cup juice. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, tapioca, extract, salt, food coloring if desired and reserved juice. Gently stir in the cherries; let stand for 15 minutes.
  • 3. Pour into the crust. Dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry; make a lattice crust. Seal and flute edges. Bake at 375° for 55-60 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"an OUTSTANDING pie. everyone just raved about it and it was very easy to make. I did make my own pie crust from another recipe though. The filling didn't run out when it was cut and tasted awesome. I reduced the sugar drastically, only adding maybe 1/4 cup since making it for a diabetic and it was great. Made this 2 more times!"

"This was the BEST cherry pie I've tasted. The filling didn't run out when you cut it. I only used about a tablespoon of sugar and it was great, sweet but not too sweet. Great pie for a diabetic too!"

"This is great. My Dad can be picky about his pies and he adored it. I had frozen cherries on hand so I thawed and used those. The pie came out terrific and gosh it was pretty while it lasted :)"
