  • This easy cherry pie looks professional but is so simple, anyone can make it. No extra steps, just basic assembly is all that’s needed to create this classic dessert. When it comes to pie, the crust can make or break the entire dessert. So if dough from scratch isn’t one of your skills, using refrigerated pie crust is a quick and easy way to make perfect pie crust every time. And even though this recipe calls for cherry, feel free to try other fruit flavors and combos like apple, peach or mixed berry. If you’re feeling extra fancy, use excess dough to decorate the top crust with dough cut-outs you can make using a knife or cookie cutters. Always a classic, cherry pie is a tried-and-true favorite that will never go out of style.
