Sweet Cherry Pie

Picture: 
Ingredients: 
5 cups sweet cherries, pitted
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tbls. flour
Pie Crust:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter flavored crisco
4-5 tbls. cold water
Glaze:
1/4 cup powder sugar
1/4 cup water
Directions: 

Take the cherries and pit them, then add the sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Mix together thoroughly and set aside.

Mix the crust ingredients together with a pastry cutter. When mixed throughly, take a piece of wax paper and place on counter top. Divide dough into two halves and place the first half on the wax paper, putting a second piece on top. Roll the dough out to fit a 9" pie pan. Take the piece of wax paper off the crust and put it face down into the pie pan, rolling the second piece of wax paper away as you go. Repeat for the top.

Bake at 425° for 10min then 350° for 30-40mins.

Glaze:
Take the powder sugar and water and mix until lumps are gone. should be a thickened consistency like egg yoke. Poor over pie as soon as it's out of the over. This is sooooo yummy!

-My Aunt Debb taught me the glaze trick and I love it! Very good on Apple pies as well.
