Today for Blogmas, I’m supposed to be sharing a cookie recipe. However, since I am currently in the middle of moving and our cookware and food selection has dwindled significantly, I am unable to put together a cookie recipe at this time. So, I’m sharing my famous cherry pie (but mainly my pie crust) recipe with you. My photos are from Thanksgiving, so don’t mind the autumn themed pumpkin pie in the back. We’ll just ignore that for now. Maybe I’ll share that one next year.
Would you believe me if I told you that I make my pie crusts from scratch? Not many people do. Pie crusts from scratch do taste better, but you can convince yourself otherwise if you’ve never had one. I grew up with homemade pie crusts, so I’m a little biased, but I also know a good pie crust when I taste one. There are pretty good pre-made pie crusts out there, I even used one for a Friendsgiving recipe earlier this year.
For cherry pie, I actually tend to buy the filling as I haven’t mastered a filling recipe yet. Also, if you have a good crust, the filling is more like the icing on the cake. If any of y’all have a good cherry filling recipe that stays together when you cut it, please send it my way. For now, I’ll just share what I use – Duncan Hines. My mom and I (mostly my mom) have picked out really good canned fillings. So good, that people even ask us to share our recipes. We can’t tell them because, well, we didn’t actually make them.
So read on and enjoy your homemade pie (crust) this year for the holidays!
