Learn to Bake Amazing Cherry Pie at Home

July is national ice cream month – and you know what goes great with ice cream? Pie. There is nothing better than a piece of pie with a large scoop of ice cream on a hot summer day.

Today’s pie of choice, a double-crusted cherry pie!

Quick and Easy Cherry Pie Recipe

Best Homemade Cherry Pie

Most of the pies I make only require a bottom crust. But with something like cherry, you need that top crust to hold everything together. And how cute are those little hearts on top?! But if you don’t have a heart cookie cutter, make sure you pierce the top crust with a fork 4 or 5 times. This allows the filling to “breathe”.

Do It Yourself Homemade Cherry Pie

The only hard part about this pie is the fact that you have to wait 3 hours for it to cool. This ensures that all the gooey goodness inside comes together the way it is supposed to. But once it has cooled, I suggest slicing it up and adding a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Ingredients
  

FILLING

  • 3 cans (14.5 oz) tart cherries in water
  • 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

CRUST

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shortening
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cold milk

Instructions
 

FOR THE FILLING:

  • In a large saucepan, combine 3 cans of cherries and the juice of 1 1/2 of the cans.
  • Cook over medium/high heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer and lower the heat to medium/low.
  • Cook mixture for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. It should be thick and jelly-like.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Add sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is combined.

FOR THE CRUST:

  • In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine flour, salt and sugar.
  • Add shortening and mix until just combined.
  • Add cold water and milk 1 tablespoon at a time. Mix until dough comes together.
  • Divide the dough in half.
  • Gather one half of the dough into a ball and shape it into a flattened round on a floured surface.
  • Roll pie crust into a circle 2 inches larger than the upside down pie plate.
  • Carefully transfer dough to pie plate and trim dough to a 1-inch overhang.

ASSEMBLY

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Add cherry filling to the pie crust.
  • Roll out remaining dough 2 inches larger than the rim of the pie plate.
  • Use a heart cookie cutter to make a design in the middle of the crust (or use a fork to pierce holes in the center of the crust).
  • Drape the top crust over the pie. Trim the edges of the two crusts to 1/2 - 1 inch beyond. Fold the crust under and crimp the edges.
  • Bake the pie for 20 minutes and then lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees. Add tin foil around the edge of the crust to keep it from burning. Continue to bake for another 30-40 minutes until the juices start to bubble.
  • Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool for at least 3 hours.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.

If you think you are undercharging - you probably are. 😬 The best thing you can do for your business right now (especially with all this inflation going on) is to make SURE your prices are helping you, not hurting you.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.
No more complicated math.
Just the right prices every single time.

And the best part is, you never have to worry about undercharging again.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
