    Debber's Note:

    Hosted a 4-H Food Project meeting at my home featuring "Fall Produce". Although I had planned to use pumpkins, apples and cranberries for the from-scratch fillings, I figured this is another way to make a pie (from the can). She made a beautiful job of it by putting a lattice top-crust on it, then glazing with an egg wash, and sprinkling with baker's sugar crystals. When it came out of the oven, the kids and I decided this was "Best of Show" -- it was so pretty and perfectly beautiful.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (9 inch) double crust pie crusts
    • 2 (20 ounce) cans cherry pie filling (or topping)
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon baker's sugar crystals


    1. 1
      Prepare pie crust according to recipe; roll out dough for bottom crust, line pie pan.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    3. 3
      Pour pie filling into bottom crust.
    4. 4
      Roll out top crust, use a butter knife (non-serrated side) to cut 1-inch strips for the lattice.
    5. 5
      Start at the center, and lay strips out in an over-n-under basket-weave fashion--leaving about 1/4-inch between strips (so the cherries peek through); crimp edges with fork tines to seal.
    6. 6
      Beat egg until very frothy, lightly brush over crust and strips--be SURE not to get it on the filling (it doesn't look very nice); immediately sprinkle with sugar.
    7. 7
      Bake in 425 oven for 15 minutes, then turn down to 325 and continue baking for another 30 minutes -- crust should be golden brown.
    8. 8
      SUGGESTIONS: Use seasonal cookie cutters to create the top crust.

      A good recipe for making a pie from canned filling. I made a small pie using only 1 can. The pie will be as good as your crust and canned filling is. I added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a pinch of nutmeg to mine. I didn't make a lattice as suggested because I use an oil crust. The flakes you see on the photo I submitted are oats that I lightly pressed into the crust.
