Cherry Pie Filling Using Canned Tart Cherries

Cherry Pie Filling Using Canned Tart Cherries

Ready in 20 minutes

If you do not have fresh tart cherries in the grocery store, this filling is a good alternative to gooey canned cherry-pie filling (which never has many cherries in it)!

" For a 9 inch deep dish pie, I used 4 (15 oz.) cans of sweetened dark cherries and cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup. I made the pie for my family for Thanksgiving, and I got huge compliments."

Delicious filling. Be sure to taste for the right amount of sugar, and do not add more than a few tablespoons of liquid into the pie, or it'll get too soggy. photo by stevemur stevemur

Terrific! I love cherry pie, and my 5-year-old really wanted to make something in the kitchen today. We put together this recipe and it was perfect. <br><br>I'd offer a few tips to make this turn out just right. (1) Sweeten to taste. My son wanted another tablespoon or two of sugar in the mixture, and it was just fine. (2) After the mixture has come together, use a slotted spoon to spoon it into pre-baked pie crust. Add only a couple of tablespoons of the liquid, otherwise, the bottom of the pan will be soggy. (3) Use egg wash (a whole egg, whisked, optionally with a dash of milk) on the top of the pie crust, plus some granulated sugar on the top to bake the pie, and (4) Allow it to cool for 15 minutes before cutting. <br><br>I skipped the butter -- the crust I used had plenty of that.<br><br>Very good! Thanks for posting!
