Recipe of Today: Homemade Cherry Pie


For The Pie Crust:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 6-8 tbsp ice water

For The Cherry Filling:

  • 4 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed


  • Preheat your oven to 375°F in advance.
  • In the mixing bowl of your Kitchenin KM50 Stand Mixer, combine the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the chilled butter cubes and mix on low speed until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Gradually add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, mixing until the dough just comes together. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Divide the dough into two equal portions and shape each into a disk. Wrap them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • While the dough chills, prepare the cherry filling. In a large bowl, combine the pitted and halved cherries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and almond extract. Mix until well combined.
  • Roll out one disk of chilled dough on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Carefully transfer the rolled dough to the pie dish and trim any excess overhang.
  • Pour the cherry filling into the prepared pie crust and dot the top with cubed butter.
  • Roll out the second disk of chilled dough and place it over the cherry filling. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges to seal.
  • Cut several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  • Brush the top crust with an egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tbsp water) for a golden finish.
  • Place the cherry pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  • Once baked, allow the cherry pie to cool on a wire rack for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Serve slices of the cherry pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired. Enjoy!
