I couldn’t resist the fresh cherries in the market. First of the season; sweet and refreshing.
The only downside of any type of fresh fruit is it can spoil quickly. With a large bag of fresh cherries and not wanting to waste even one the only option was to make a fresh cherry pie!
A cherry pie is simple to make and tastes amazing! How could I resist?
Fresh Cherry Pie:
Fresh pitted cherries – atleast 2 heaping cups. You want to have a full pie shell. It can be painstaking to pit each cherry but fresh cherry pie tastes so much better then can.
1/4 tsp of pure almond extract
Pinch of salt
3 heaping tablespoons of gluten free minute tapioca
2 tablespoons of softened butter
1) Preheat oven to 385F
Place pitted cherries in a bowl. Add almond extract, salt and tapioca. Mix well
2) Prepare pie shell. Refer to my earlier post about my amazing Gluten Free dough!
3) Place cherry mixture into pie shell.
