Two Easy Pie Crust Designs! + Cherry Pie Recipe
Oh hey friends! I still can’t believe I baked seven pies in two days. Probably my biggest accomplishment haha! Anyways, I wanted to share with you my super fun cherry pie creations! I love making the fun pie crusts and getting creative! Obviously I’ll also be including the recipe + all my steps!! Enjoy!
Pre-heat your oven to 425°
Grease your foil pan!
Lay your pie crust down and flatten the bottom of the crust.
Cut off the edges of your crust around the pan.
Pie Crust #1
I got these cutters from hobby lobby for $3! They are seriously amazing! Click HERE for the leaf cutters!
I cut out multiple sizes of leaves and set them aside. Leaving the outline in the crust
Pie lesson #1: Two cans of pie filling is WAY TOO MUCH! Your pies will explode.
Fill your dish with cherry pie filling. Since 2 cans is too much, I recommend 1 full can and half of another can.
Place your pie crust on top of the filling and cut the edges.
Take this white wiggly spatula thing and use water to seal the edges. Some people do an egg wash but I used water for the cherry pies.
Pie Crust #2
Repeat all of the beginning steps
Cut small strips of pie crust, I used a pizza cutter to make it easier on me.
Twist your strips and lay them on top of your filling.
Try to stick the ends together. It’s a lot harder when they covered in cherry goo
I used some of the left over leaves I cut out and added them to the edges
Bake the pies for 20 minutes at 425°
Take them out and cover your edges with a shield or aluminum foil to keep your edges from burning!
Reduce your heat to 350° and bake for 50 minutes.
When I first did this, my recipe said to continue to bake the pies at 425°. My cherry pies exploded and looked like a hot mess. I experimented with my apple pie and got better results!
When you reduce your heat + don’t fill the pies as much, there’s way better results! Learn from my mistakes!
After the pies cooled I was able to scrape off some of the cherry goo. They weren’t perfect but I was happy with them!
Ingredients for one pie:
2 cans of cherry pie filling
1 box of pie crust (2 count in each box)
1 pie foil pan
