MMMMMM..... Fresh pie. Who doesn't enjoy homemade pie! Especially when they are right out of the oven.
My goal for this Instructable was to make a small, 1-2 person pie. This was an experiment of mine that turned out to be a great success. I used fresh sweet cherries off my neighbor’s tree (I got permission first) and Granny Smith apples from the store. I lacked the motivation to make my own dough, so I used the store bought solution. This recipe makes 4 mini pies.
Step 1: Ingredients
4 mini oven-proof ceramic cups (Ramekins)
various measuring cups
1 9 inch pie crust
1 cup of cherries (I chose to use sweet cherries, but if you use sour, add more sugar.)
2.5 tablespoons of sugar
2 teaspoons of cornstarch
1.5 teaspoons of water
0.5 of a teaspoon of lemon juice
A drop of almond extract
1-2 drops of red food coloring
1 egg white to glaze the top
Step 2: Making the cherry filling
When you are done pitting the cherries, move them to a medium sized bowl. Next you will need to mix in the cornstarch and sugar. Then add water, lemon juice, almond extract, and food coloring (if you are using any).
Set aside when finished.
