This cherry pie recipe is extremely simple to prepare as it only takes some mixing, filling, and baking then voila! You are done.
The most difficult part of this recipe is pitting the cherries. I would personally recommend using a cherry pitter as it makes life so much easier.
Pitting fresh cherries is always a messy and time-consuming task. Buying a cherry pitter has sped up this process so much and it will help get this delectable dessert on the table faster.
I always use fresh cherries, especially during cherry season. This is because fresh cherries will give this pie the best flavour and texture. However, you can use frozen or canned cherries as a substitute.
The exact cherry variety you use does not matter much. Simply choose whichever you prefer.
Both sweet or sour cherries can be used, but be sure to adjust the sugar accordingly if you are using sour cherries.
Warm homemade cherry is best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Instead of puff pastry, stick to using shortcrust pastry. The puff pastry has a flakier texture than the shortcrust pastry, which is crumbier.
Pies and tarts benefit from the crumb-like texture of the shortcrust pastry. This is due to the crust’s ability to hold soggy, wet fillings, such as this cherry filling.
The cherry filling is quite moist, the shortcrust pastry makes an ideal base for this cherry pie.
Although egg wash is not required, it is always a good idea when baking any type of dough.
This is because egg wash gives it the signature golden top as well as helps to crisp up the top.
Sprinkle granulated sugar on top of the baked pie for decoration. This adds a little crunch and sparkle to the pie, making it stand out on the dinner table.
This cherry pie recipe is truly delectable and requires very little effort.
A delicious dessert tastes absolutely divine despite the fact that it contains no fancy ingredients and requires little effort.
