Canned cherry pie fillings and most other canned pie fillings are ready to eat straight out of the tin. These canned fillings don’t have to be heated or cooked, but as with most pies, can taste better heated.

What cherries are good for pie?

Cherries are a great choice for pies because they are naturally sweet and tart, and they hold their shape when cooked. They also have a beautiful deep red color that makes for a stunning pie. When using cherries for pies, it is best to use fresh or frozen cherries. If using frozen cherries, make sure to thaw them before using. When using fresh cherries, make sure to pit them before adding them to the pie. Cherries pair well with other fruits, such as apples, peaches, and blueberries, and can be used in a variety of pies, such as cherry-apple, cherry-blueberry, and cherry-peach.

Instructions
 

To make the pie crust

  • First, to make the pie crust, you’ll need to cut the chilled butter into small cubes.
    150 g Unsalted butter
  • Grab yourself a large mixing bowl and sift the flour.
    300 g Plain flour
  • Add in your butter cubes and using the tips of your fingers, rub the flour and butter together until you create a crumbly texture almost like bread crumbs.
  • Now add in the salt and 2 tablespoons of caster sugar and give it a quick stir.
    ¼ Tbsp Salt, 2 Tbsp Caster sugar
  • Make a well in the center of the crumbled mixture and add in the yolk of one egg and add in the water.
    1 Large egg yolk, 3-4 Tbsp Iced water
  • Using a spatula, work the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, keep mixing until it forms a soft dough.
  • Knead the dough a couple of times and flatten into a disk shape. Cover with clingfilm and chill for about an hour in the refrigerator.
  • After the dough has been chilled, remove from the fridge, and set to one side to bring it back down to almost room temperature again.
  • Preheat your oven to 180°C.
    Preheat oven 180 degrees
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Now divide the dough into two pieces; this makes it easier to roll.

Notes

Tips and Tricks
If your dough seems a little to crumbly when forming the dough ball, add in I little more water 1 tsp at a time; it’s better to do this slowly as it can get very sticky very quickly.
The longer you leave the dough in the fridge to cool, the better the pastry turns out. I find when I have left it in the fridge overnight it turns out much nicer and is easier to roll too.
Make sure that the pastry is at room temperature before rolling, as this prevents cracking.
When it comes to rolling out the dough make sure to keep moving it around on the floured surface; this stops it from sticking.

What is a Cherry Pie?

Cherry pie is a classic dessert that is made with a sweet, tart filling of cherries and a flaky pastry crust. It is usually served with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. The filling can be made with fresh or canned cherries, and is often flavored with almond extract, cinnamon, and/or nutmeg. The crust is usually made with a combination of butter, flour, and sugar. Cherry pies can be served warm or cold, and can be topped with a lattice crust or a crumble topping.
