Many people like an apple pie the best, while others can’t resist a cherry pie. Some say that Americans have cherry pie deep in their DNA. It looks deliciously irresistible with its cheery and bright appearance. You just have to try it.


Basic Pie Dough



  • 5–6 cups pitted fresh cherries (tart, sweet, or mix both),
  • 1½ cups sugar (if cherries are sweet, use less),
  • 3 tbsp tapioca or 4 tbsp cornstarch,
  • pinch of salt,
  • 1 tbsp butter, to pat the top of filling,
  • 1 beaten egg, to brush the top crust.


  1. Prepare the Basic Pie Dough for a double-crust pie.
  2. Prepare the filling: Stir together cherries, sugar, tapioca, and salt in a large bowl. Allow to sit for around 20 minutes to let tapioca activate. Spoon into the pie shell.
  3. Place a pat of butter on top, then cover with the top crust. Trim and crimp edges, or make a pretty lattice top, brush with whisked egg, then make vent holes.
  4. Bake at 425 degrees for 15–20 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes or more. Filling should be bubbling.

About Sabina Witres

I loved pies already as a kid. I watched my mom making them and usually I was the one who took the first bite. Now, I make pies myself. I like to experiment with ingredients, sizes and shapes. It's always fun!
