We love taking the kids out to pick fruit in the summer....strawberries, raspberries and cherries. The problem? You have so much fruit that you don't know what to do with! Yes, my kids eat a ton, but when you pick numerous pounds of stuff, they only last for so long before going bad. So when we went cherry picking over the summer, I knew I had to figure out something to do with some of it.
I decided to make my first ever cherry pie. And it turned out pretty darn good! I'm sure I'll be making it again next year when we go cherry picking!
5 cups cherries, pitted
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
pie crusts (either homemade or store bought)
1. Add cherries, sugar, and cornstarch to a pan and stir to combine.
