Ingredients

CHERRY FILLING

    In a Sauce Pan Combine & Simmer on Medium Stirring Occasionally

    • 3 Cans Tart Cherries in Water Drain the water
    • 1/4 cup Apple Sauce Organic Unsweetened
    • 5 tbsp Corn Starch Organic

    While cooking the Filling Make your Crust

      Instructions

      Add Filling to your Pie Crust & Top

        CHERRY FILLING

        • Keep on warm While you Prepare your crust. You really cannot overcook this unless you burn the cherries or not stir it enough and get sticking.
          Usually a solid 20 minutes is sufficient.

        Par-Bake your bottom crust

        • Because this is a more moist, filling, I suggest Par-Baking your bottom crust about 5-10 minutes on 350 degrees Fahrenheit if using any of my crust recipes. 

        Pre-Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit

          Bake on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes

            Notes

            This recipe will fill one 9 inch pie pan at a depth of about 1 and a half inches.

            (This Recipe Makes one Pie Crust more than enough for a Bottom and top of a 9 inch pie Plate or for 3 small pie tins)

            COMBINE

            • Combine all the ingredients from “Step 1” Into a food processor and pull for 30 seconds

            FORM:

            • Roll Your Dough out evenly to desired thickness. To save for a top piece of the pie roll the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch or decently thin. 
            • Use your pie dish or a dish just larger than the pie dish to trace out a good circle. Excess can be cut off and removed after plating the crust. 
            • You can do Flat edges
            • Or pull the dough into an impressive edge using your fingers

            Top Crust

            • Reform the extra dough into a ball and using your rolling pin, re-flatten the dough just enough to reach the outside of your pie dish. 
            • You can make strips
            • Or you can go with the plat top
