Cherry Pie

Cherry pie is a classic dessert that is loved by many. It consists of a sweet, flaky crust filled with juicy, tart cherries that are baked to perfection. It’s a perfect treat for any occasion, from family dinners to holiday gatherings. A slice of warm cherry pie served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is the ultimate comfort food. It’s also a great way to showcase fresh, seasonal fruit, making it a popular choice during the summer months.


  • 2 pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)
  • 4 cups fresh cherries, pitted

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the cherries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, almond extract, and salt until well combined.
  3. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim any excess dough from the edges.
  4. Pour the cherry mixture into the pie crust.
  5. Roll out the second pie crust and cut it into thin strips. Arrange the strips on top of the cherry filling in a lattice pattern.
  6. Brush the beaten egg over the top of the crust and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
