Expert Tips

Substitute frozen cherries if you cannot find fresh.

Weave a lattice top for the pie for an extra-special presentation.

Serve with ice cream and/or fresh mint.

After first 15 to 20 minutes of baking, cover edge of crust with strips of foil or a pie crust shield to keep edges from browning too much.
