Because it’s christmas and because my sister, Alisha van Bone, is such an amazing cook, I wanted to inspire you with a christmas baking idea! Alisha made this fresh cherry pie for our friend’s christmas party and it was definitely a hit.
The cherry pie was made from a recipe in the October issue of Delicious magazine and isn’t online yet but I found a similar recipe. She used fresh cherries and cut out pastry shapes to decorate the top, making it look fun and christmasy, enjoy!
It was so difficult not to eat all these delicious fresh cherries!
So that’s how you get the seeds out of cherries… use a cherry pit remover!
Blending the ingredients for the pastry.
Cherries tossed in sugar and put into the pie dish, now for the fun part…
Cutting out shapes from the pastry to cover the cherries. Alisha chose these stars because they look like snowflakes.
Covering the cherries with shapes, it’s all coming together…
Brush with some egg and it’s ready to bake!
The final result! And I can assure you it was as yummy as it looks!
What are you cooking this christmas?
