What You'll Need --------------------------------------------------------------------- Crust * 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour * 3 1/3 oz butter, cubed and chilled * 3 tbsp ice water Filling * 3 lbs fresh cherries or the equivalent of canned cherries, drained * 1/2 cup sugar (omit if you use sweetened canned cherries) * 1/4 cup flour or 3 tbsp quick cooking tapioca * 1 tbsp lemon juice * 1 tsp almond extract * 2 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces Brushing * 1 egg, lightly beaten * 2 tbsp powdered sugar Equipment * Mixing bowls * Measuring cups and spoons * Rolling pin * Pie dish * Plastic wrap * Pastry brush 1. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add in the cubed and chilled butter. Rub the mixture with your fingertips until it forms coarse crumbs. 2. Add enough ice water to make the crumbs into a dough. 3. Place the dough on a floured flat surface and knead until firm. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Roll each portion of the dough with rolling pin into a 10-inch circle. Wrap each sheet with plastic wrap on a baking sheet and refrigerate for 15 minutes. 1. Preheat the oven to 425 °?F (218° C). 2. Line your pie dish with one pastry crust. Press the pastry crust gently to the dish. Leave a 1/2-inch lining and trim the excess pastry. 3. In a bowl, mix all of the filling ingredients except the butter with a spoon. Place it into the center of the lined pie dish. Scatter the butter pieces on top. 4. Take the second pastry sheet and place it evenly over the filling. Carefully seal the sides. 5. Brush the top of the pie with the loosely beaten egg. Dust with the powdered sugar. 6. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown. 7. Serve the pie with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Read more by visiting our page at: http://www.mahalo.com/how-to-make-cherry-pie/
