I usually bake with frozen fruit because it stores easily. Also, if I don’t get to bake one day, I don’t have to worry about the fruit ruining. I get to it when I get to it. With that being said, I walked into my grocery store the other day, and they had the best cherries, and I could not pass them by! It’s a bit of a task to pit fresh cherries, but worth the result. Luckily, I still had enough for this Classic Cherry Pie after eating about half of them as I pitted.

Classic Cherry Pie

I didn’t get very creative with this pie, but I did substitute coconut oil for butter in my pie crust. I also added 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to the pastry crust which I thought warmed it up nicely for fall.

Seriously, I think this is the best Cherry Pie. The cherry filling is tart and slightly sweet. The crust is light and flaky. If you’re so inclined, I was, top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream.
