How To Make a Cherry Pie

How To Make a Cherry Pie - hi dear. Today, i wanna share to you how to make a Cheery pie. Cherry pie is just about the easiest fruit pie to make. Sour cherries -- the kind you need for pie -- are rarely available fresh or frozen, so the canned variety usually is the only option for most cooks. Not only do canned cherries make good pies, but there's also no peeling, coring, seeding, pitting or slicing the fruit. Just drain, dump, sweeten, flavor and thicken, and you're in business.
