  • 5 cups fresh sour cherries , washed and pitted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch or tapioca starch/flour
  • 2 recipes unbaked Light & Flaky Pie Crust or gluten-free pie crusts of choice


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Heat cherries in a medium saucepan over low heat until they start to soften. Stir in sugar, lemon juice, vanilla and salt. Increase heat and cook a few minutes until juices are released. Add cornstarch and continue to cook until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes.
  • Line a 9-inch pie pan with pie crust. Flute the edges. Use your fingers to repair any tears in the crust, if needed.
  • Pour cooled filling into prepared crust. Top with second pie crust or lattice (cut dough into strips and weave them over the top).
  • Loosely cover pie with aluminum foil to prevent the top from browning too quickly. Place pie on a baking sheet and bake in preheated oven 40 to 50 minutes or until filling is bubbling and crust is baked. Remove foil after 25 minutes to let top brown.
  • Remove pie from the oven and let cool before slicing.


*TIP: If you can’t find fresh sour cherries, use fresh sweet cherries mixed with ¼ cup fresh lemon juice. Alternatively, fill your crust with 60 ounces of canned gluten-free cherry pie filling.
