DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 425 degrees.
  • Prepare a glass 8-inch pie plate.
  • Roll out one pastry into about a 9-1/2-inch circle.
  • Gently fit into bottom of the pie plate.
  • In a bowl combine the well-drained cherries, 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch and tapioca; toss gently to combine.
  • Spoon the cherry mixture into the pie crust.
  • Top with remaining pastry.
  • Press edges of bottom and top pastry together, then trim and flute.
  • Cut a couple of steam vents in the top pastry.
  • Brush the top of the crust with half and half cream, then sprinkle with 2-3 teaspoons sugar.
  • Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch spills.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to 375 degrees, continue to bake for about 45-50 minutes longer or until crust is golden and the pie is bubbly (cover edges with foil if necessary to prevent browning).
  • Cool pie on a rack, before slicing.
