    Need recipe for cherry pie

    I just harvested my first batch of pie cherries from the trees I planted years ago.

    Does anybody have a good recipe for cherry pie?

    OOOH!!!

    My grandma makes an awesome cherry pie.

    I don't have the recipe for it, but maybe I can get her to share it...its hard to say, because some recipes she won't give out. I'll try though!


    (what about cherry cobbler?)

    Ooo....I don't have a good filling recipe, but I have the mother of all piecrusts.

    A few years ago, Cooks Illustraited came up with one using vodka instead of water(the alcohol doesn't activate the gluten in the flour like water does). I use home-rendered lard instead of shortening, and when I make apple pie I use applejack or inexpensive calvados instead of the vodka. I've also had pretty amazing results using a low-juniper gin for savory meat pies.

    Those all are great. I gotta make the filling at least tomorrow.

    I usually don't make a crust from dust, but my #2 daughter is home from college, and she still enjoys - even after all these years - do projects with her old man. This would be good.

    Cobbler was canned cherries (usually), but canned peaches were popular too.

    On top of that was a squat layer of Bisquick, the busy mother's economical little helper.

    Do you have something more elegant?

    Re: Need recipe for cherry pie

    Corbin: Check this out....it looks delish enough, that I'm looking for cherries now!

    When I asked, she was quiet for a second, and said "Honey, I don't even know where a written recipe for that might be!" ...My grandma's idea of a recipe is "well, I do *this*, and I add a pinch of *that*..."

    I shouldn't complain, since I do the same thing. I'm trying to find my cobbler recipe, since I...."do *this*, and I add a pinch of *that*..."
