Its my clarification for those who don’t know the meaning for pie, it’s a baked dish with a pastry dough and a filling. We cover the pie with the same dough mixture. The covering made can be imaginative.The fresh cherries that I got were deep red ones with right amount of tarty juicy goodness and was enjoyable to have it as such. Thought of doing a pie recipe with these beautiful tasty cherrys and it was a easy fresh cherry pie recipe that anyone can try. You will not always get the right cherries every time so instead of cherries you use apples,strawberries or even peaches.The crust of the pie was

crusty biscuity and when combined with the sweet cherry filling it was very tasty. For the right pie dough the butter should be in right temperature it should not be soft. It should be ice-cold so that when you bake you will get the right baked texture for this pie. The dough once made should be refrigerated at least for half an hour so that it will not melt while rolling and till we put it into the pie dish. If the dough for the pie is not in right consistency the whole recipe will be a failure. This is a very easy fresh cherry pie recipe that you should try at home.

The pie dough should be soft and pliable and not sticky. The butter for the pastry should not be soft it should be good enough to make it as bread crumb texture. The oven temperature differs so bake it as needed till the crust becomes golden. Adding butter to the filling is purely optional. My cherrys were sweet enough so the sugar added complimented each other well.
