Scupper’s Cherry Pies

Ingredients

  • 6 cups frozen sweet dark cherries **and the juice
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Take the juice from the frozen cherries and whisk in the 4 Tablespoons of cornstarch.  Add all ingredients to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then on low heat simmer for 10-15 minutes. Let cool. Fill pie crust and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes for mini pies or 40-50 minutes for one large pie.  I used the large sized muffin tins and these were the perfect size for individual pies. For non stick tins, there is no need to grease the pan. 


Nerdy Tips

  • If you are lucky enough to be making this pie while cherries are in season- yay for you!! Just replace the frozen cherry juice with  1/2 cup of water to whisk with the cornstarch. 
  • feel free to add almond or vanilla extract to your cherry filling if you’d like to change it up. 
  • For the pie dough: use cold butter. If you have delays, refrigerate the dough. 
  • Use ice cold water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the dough is wet but not quite sticky. 
  • I used a saucepan lid to make the perfect size circles for my tins.
