- Adhere strips together by dabbing with water, or brush egg wash over the finished pie.
- Sprinkle with coarse sugar and bake.

Fresh Cherry Pie
When it was announced that dried cherries would be the featured ingredient in the baking competition that year, I experimented with adding them to my Fresh Cherry Pie recipe. I love the combination of the cherries and the chocolate drizzle.
