I've never cared for cherry pie but my son wanted to make one so we used this recipe
Thanks for the great tips! I'm going to make this for my dad, he's going to be 80 and I just found out he loves cherries. I was the dessert baker in the family growing up, which is a great chore for the daughter/girl in the family because at the end of the day, everyone loves you-even the brothers! ;)
I'm a farm wife from the Saskatchewan Cda. The thing that took the longest in this recipe was pitting the cherries I picked on the farm. I'm not complaining because the flavour was incredible. It was very easy. I contemplated adding almond extract but really I didn't miss it.
My husband enjoyed this tasty easy to make cherry pie.
didnt try this yet because it didnt say to drain the cherries or not....
I'm confused. The recipe is for "sweet cherry" pie, yet bakers are using "sour cherries," which we love. Are you using the same amount of sugar when you are using sour cherries in place of the sweet ones?
I just made this pie last week with fresh sour cherries I picked off the tree myself. The pie was wonderful!
I forgot to mention in my review...my recipe is identical to this one but it calls for 3 TBSP. cornstarch instead of 2.
My daughters picked the cherries from our tree and made this pie with them. (sour cherries) It came out so well, that not only did they intend to pick all the cherries before the birds got any, but they convinced their dad to go out and buy 3 more cherry trees to make this pie. It is THAT good! We are experimenting with making and freezing the filling this summer too so we can have this pie all winter long.
I have full intentions of making this pie. To "Weirich", look into Whey Low on the internet. I've been using it for a good ten years and wouldn't use anything else! It tastes just like sugar, it's one to one, NO aftertaste and it's healthy, no chemicals. There is also Whey Low for diabetics so you're not left out. Believe me, you won't be sorry!!
