Sweet cherries are enveloped in a flaky buttery crust, and then baked until golden and bubbling. Served with vanilla ice cream (of course), I dare you to find a dessert more perfect for summer.
” I don’t want to spend my life not having good food going into my pie hole. That hole was meant for pies.” —Paula Deen
I haven’t seen eye to eye with Paula Deen on a lot of things, but I have to agree with her on this one. Life is just too short to not enjoy a good homemade slice of pie every now and then.
This sweet cherry pie has been a summer favorite of mine ever since I first baked it several years ago. I’ve never been a big fan of cherry pie made with canned sour cherries, but this version made with fresh sweet cherries is a whole different story.
The only problem is not eating the cherries before I’ve had a chance to bake the pie! Now that’s a challenge, but it comes with a very sweet reward.
