And no, that picture of cherry pie has absolutely nothing to do with it. LOL As you can see half of it is gone. That's because it's really good. It was in the nature of an experiment. I had some dried cherries that I bought a while back. I just like eating them out of the bag, but today I thought I'd try using some of them to make a pie. It was a success! I'd give you the recipe, but I just sort of made it up as I went along and didn't keep accurate measurements. I soaked the cherries for about thirty minutes (while I was preparing the pie crust and cooking lunch) in boiling water I poured over them. I added about a half cup of sugar, then ladled the cherries into the pie crust. I zapped the juice, sugar and a couple tablespoons I think of cornstarch in the microwave until it thickened, a couple of minutes. Poured that over the cherries, added the top crust, cut vent holes, sprinkled a little sugar on top and baked at 400F degrees until bubbly. Pretty simple.
Doesn't that just make you want to get a nice big slice for yourself? If you were here, you could sure have one! I had mine with ice cream.
Hope your weekend is simply grand! I'm going to be busy sewing.
Hugs and kisses,
