Steps

1

Let’s prepare the dough first. 3 cups of flour, ½ a teaspoon of salt, 2 tablespoons of cane sugar and butter – room temperature and diced. Now mix it all together.

2

Process all ingredients and create a dough.

3

Now take the dough, cut it in half, wrap each half in saran wrap and let it rest in a fridge.

4

Pit all the cherries. Take about 300g of pitted cherries and put it in a pan. Add one tablespoon of sugar and few drops of vanilla extract and boil until the cherries break apart and create a jam. Be careful to stir the jam properly, it can get burned pretty quick.

5

Put it aside to cool down and prepare the pie pan. Spread it with butter and cover with flour.

6

Take the dough out of the fridge. Take one half and roll out the bottom of pie. Put it in the pie pan and adjust the crust edges.

7

Now add the rest of pitted cherries and cover with the cherry jam all around the pie.

8

Take the other half of dough and create the lattice top pie crust.

9

Once it’s ready put it in an oven at 180°C degrees until the dough gets golden. It should take approximately 40 minutes.
