Whenever my mom is invited to a party or potluck, everyone requests her homemade double-crust fruit pies. In the summer, she uses fresh, tart cherries for this recipe. I love a slice topped with vanilla ice cream. — Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2013

I love making pies. The crust recipe I usually use has been in my family for years. It doesn't use butter, but shortening and milk. So I wanted to try a butter crust and this one turned out delicious. It was easy to make and roll. I had plenty of dough for a 9" double crust pie.

I recently purchased some Instant Clear Gel as I read that it was a good substitute for flour, cornstarch or tapioca. And it was! The filling turned out just right.

My husband was very happy.
