It’s cherry time! We were lucky enough to have loads of sunshine this summer so cherries are looking good right now. I love to eat fresh cherries but even more I love a good cherry pie.
Here comes my very easy cherry pie recipe. I baked this several times, it always comes out yummy. It’s particularly nice served with a dollop of cream or vanilla ice cream. I usually make it with shop-bought puff pastry but if you are a pro, make yours from scratch. This is a very relaxed recipe, I often don’t even measure quantities, I just add what cherries I have, sometimes I top up my fresh ( or sometimes frozen) cherries with kirsch cherries from a jar for extra flavour. But sometimes, I like my pie just plain, no added frills. Take this recipe and make it your own, experiment, play.
Start by turning your oven on. Line a round baking tray with one sheet of puff pastry. I top the pastry with 2 table spoons of ground almond, 2-3 good handfuls of cherries (remove pips first), depending of how you like a pie; I like mine with loads of cherries. Sprinkle 4 table spoons of soft brown sugar on the cherries and a good pinch of cinnamon. Cover with an other sheet of pastry. Brush pastry with one whisked egg and sprinkle some caster sugar on top. Bake for 25 min at 350F.
Let me know how you get on, enjoy it. #goodthings
