Eating seasonally – through pie: Cherry

Cherry pie - blondewalk

There is something about sour cherry pie that screams old-fashioned. Although we love eating fresh sour cherries from our neighbor’s backyard tree, we had yet to try them within a flakey, buttery piecrust. Just another reason we are grateful this challenge – it encourages us to step outside our comfort zone! And what a delight it was. The tartness of the sour cherries mixed with the almond extract and lemon juice – truly a perfect combination. Our mouths are watering just writing this. We opted for a lattice top crust to feature the gorgeous red color of the cherries. Topped with vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream), this pie did not disappoint. We suggest you make this pie before the sour cherries are out of season!»
