How to make Homemade Cherry Pie
Ingredients you’ll need:
- My homemade pie crust (or 2 store-bought pie crusts)
- fresh cherries
- caster/granulated sugar
- lemon juice
- vanilla extract
- almond extract
- large egg
To make my Homemade Cherry Pie, you’ll need to go make my pie crust first, up to step three. OR, if you must, buy two crusts for top and bottom of the pie.
Next, the cherry filling. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the cherries, sugar, cornflour, lemon, vanilla, and almond extract.
Bring to the boil, stirring often, and cook until the cherries start breaking down and the mixture has thickened. Remove from the heat, and allow to cool completely.
Line an ungreased 9×2-inch pie dish with one crust, and pour in your cherry filling. ↓
Roll out the other half of the dough, and using a pastry wheel or sharp knife, cut into strips. Create a lattice top over the filling.
Brush on some egg wash, and sprinkle with sugar. Now it’s time to bake!
Let the pie cool completely at room temperature before slicing and serving. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a topping of your choice!
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
