This delicious pie is made with Morello cherries from Poland. I bought them at Aldi's ... and we always need to remember that Aldi and Trader Joe's are owned by the same company! Much of what you find at Trader Joe's as something unique and special, you will also find at Aldi's!
Morello cherries are dark deep red and they are supposed to be tart ... but I think they are sweet! They certainly are not as tart as the cherries I have growing in my back yard!
The pie sure was easy to make! I used a frozen crust and all you have to do to make two layers is place the second frozen crust upside down over the first one after the filling is in it. In about ten minutes it will fall out of the pan. Then you can make it look cute! Mix 3 Tablespoons of corn starch and 1/2 cup sugar with the cherries (and juice) before pouring them into the pic crust. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour.
I'll share this with some of the parties on my sidebar, but make sure you take a look at my home page before you move on! You'll find something that you like!
