Cherry Pie

DifficultyIntermediate

Cherry pie with fresh strawberries and pineapple.

Getting sweet cherries is a hard find in my area so I use a canned cherry filling to make my pies, however there’s that craving for something fresh in all my meals as nutrition is very important to my husband and I. Here’s my simple easy cherry strawberry pie recipe.

I use the same dough as my butter tarts and apple dumpling so yes, this dough is very versatile and has a great fridge life as well.

Can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
