I didn't think I could improve on my cherry pie--WRONG! This replaces it in a heartbeat. Turned out beautifully. The only change I made was to give the upper crust an egg white wash, then sprinkle with sugar. Thanks, Luby for another winner.
Great tasting pie! Do want to warn anyone who tries to make this. I made it EXACTLY as directed and when I went to check on it around 50 mins it was very liquidy! I was freaking out thinking the pie was ruined but it was not! I covered the perimeter crust with foil and baked it for 15 mins longer. The filling was still very loose when I took it out but after it sat and cooled for a bit it firmed up right away. It is a very good cherry pie- more tart than sweet (like you would get from a cherry pie filling out of a can). I will definitely make it again.
Hi, Luby! Made your pie for Thanksgiving and it was absolutely "delicious". The best Cherry pie I've ever made and the family loved it! The only change I made was to use 3 cans of pitted tart cherries, though I still used 1/2 cup of juice. I skipped the food coloring. I was out of almond extract (which I usually use) so used vanilla. Thanks so much for posting!
Good flavor, easy to put together. PLACE A COOKIE SHEET UNDERNEATH lined with foil because a lot of liquid will bubble out and make a mess. My cookie sheet was loaded with burnt on sticky filling when it was all done.
Love this. This was one of the first pie recipes I ever used and boy am I glad! Comes out great, and just sweet enough with the amount of sugar in the recipe, as I don't enjoy super-sweet pie.
Oh my gosh, your recipe is amazing!! This was the first time I've ever made a cherry pie, so I was really pleased that it turned out so well!! I didn't change a thing... it made a devilishly good "Vam-Pie" for my Halloween party :) I'm gonna go eat another slice right now!!
So glad you posted this recipe--I made this over the weekend for my crew of hungry farmers who were planting corn--they loved it! Definitely a keeper! Can't wait to make it with the cherries from our cherry trees!
Absolutely horrible! The juice was a big mistake. The almond was a bad idea. The whole thing was like wet candy under my beautiful pie crust.
This is a wonderful cherry pie! I made it yesterday for a Super Bowl get-together and everyone raved about it. I sprinkled the top with some granulated sugar before baking (be sure to have some foil under the pie while baking- this is a JUICY pie)and served it with a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla ice cream.Yummmmmmy good! This is a keeper- thanks for posting this,Luby!
This is my first cherry pie and it turned out so beautiful and delicious, all because of this amazing recipe!!! I omitted the red food coloring and cut back the sugar to 1 cup. Absolutely to die for! Will certainly make it again! Thank you!
