Cherry Pie

Last I promise you to post cherry pie that I've made at my mother in-law's 80th birthday. This is it! Cherry that I've used are sweet cherries from Jork, Germany, when you want to see the pictures of me when I bought the cherries there, see my last post :  Cherry Clafoutis. On this recipe I didn't bake first the pie crust, this way makes the pie soft and smooth (not crispy/crunchy). I pureed and cooked half of the cherries and put whole cherries on top of it. I was really good, so fruity.


Pie crust:
200g Flour
150g Butter
50g Sugar
100g ground Almond nuts
a pinch of salt

400g sweet cherries, pureed
100g sweet cherries, whole
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon corn starch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1 drop of almond extract

Egg wash:
1 Egg yolk
2 Tablespoons milk

What you need:
24cm diameter Pie form
1 teaspoon Butter for greasing


- Mix all of pie crust ingredients, mash by using your hand until all ingredients mixed together
- Wrap the pie dough with plastic wrap and keep it in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
- Blend or puree the 400g cherries with sugar, cinnamon powder, nutmeg powder, corn starch and almond extract, (you can substitute the corn starch with flour), cook for10 minutes.
- Prepare the pie form and grease with butter.
- Remove pie dough from refrigerator, divide into 2 pieces (one piece for the pie crust and the other one for lattice), press the dough for pie crust until the the edge of the form, then make a small holes by using fork.
- Pour the pureed cherries into the pie and spread the 100g whole cherries on top of it.
- Spread the working surface with flour and roll the other dough with rolling pin, cut long with dull knife/cutter. Put or arrange on top of the pie (make lattice).
- Preheat oven 160°C.
- Mix egg yolks and milk (egg wash) , brush on to the pie lattice.
- Bake 25 minutes 160°C.
- Cool down and ready to serve.
