How to make the best cherry pie! Pi Pie Pi
Step 1: The Ingredients
Cleveland Heights Cherry Pie
12 ounce flour
8 ounces butter
4 ounces ice water
5 cups sour cherries, pits removed
1-1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
Step 2: How to Make the Pie!
Cut the butter into the flour, mix in the water just till a dough forms (don't over work it). Chill the dough. Roll out three quarters of the dough to fill a pie dish, save the rest for the lattice crust (see this instructable for more detailed instructions on making a lattice crust, important to interlace the strips).
Combine the cherries, sugar and cornstarch and toss. Pour the mixture into your pie shell, lay your lattice over this and pinch the edges to form an appealing rim. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then reduce the temperature to 350 and conintue baking for another hour or until the filling is thick and bubbling. Hands off until it's cooled a little! Serve with vanilla ice cream.
