Cherry Pie


This is a SparkPeople.com Recipe (what's this)

Introduction

This tangy pie is a tasty reminder of summer all year long. This tangy pie is a tasty reminder of summer all year long.

Ingredients

    • 2 9-inch pie crusts (store bought or homemade)
    • 2 16-oz. cans tart cherries, packed in water
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup cornstarch
    • 1 tablespoon margarine

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Drain 1-cup of liquid from the cherries and pour into a saucepan. Mix the cornstarch and sugar together, then stir into the liquid and add margarine. Bring to a boil over medium heat and stir, until thickened, for one minute. Remove from heat and stir in cherries.

3. Fit a 9" round pie pan with one crust, and pour cooled filling into crust-filled pan. Fit either lattice-worked top or full top over pie, using margarine or egg to seal edges while crimping together. (If using double crust, make five slits in top of crust for steam to escape.)

4. Bake about 60 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. If the crust begins to brown too quickly, cover around the edges with aluminum foil.


Makes 8 servings.

    As I always do, use splenda instead of sugar. Still alot of calories, but for a holiday meal I will enjoy but cut a smaller piece. - 4/24/09

    Since I don't trust Splenda any more than saccharine, I will be making with sugar. Thinking of adding diced quince or would that be too much, given it calls for sour cherries? - 10/21/08

    Trying this one, sounds wonderful ; cheaper than buying canned cherry pie filling. a comment, sounded like a 9' pie to serve 8, confusing size? I feel sorry for people that can never afford to eat a piece of wonderful pie, adjust your daily count, and enjoy (it's not a daily meal) - 10/21/08

  • I could not find canned cherries in water. I used frozen tart cherries instead and used water to get the cherry juice to 1 cup. It turned out great. - 8/10/11

    When we made it. We made two (2) pies. "Serves: 16" is what you said. Where did you get "Makes 8 servings."
    This is incorrect. It makes two (2) pies. - 4/24/09

    Well, the calories might be off, but the cholesterol is still at 0, and that's what I like the most. I can adjust if I want a piece of pie (with zero cholesterol) Thanks for sharing, and don't worry about the "nellies" that go and LOOK for errors to ruin people's day. - 4/24/09
