This easy cherry pie recipe takes about three minutes to assemble and then 45 minutes to bake. There is no easier and more delicious cherry pie out there. You’re going to love it!
I make 3 pies for Thanksgiving dinner. It doesn’t matter how many guests are coming, nor who they are.
Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without a slice of cherry pie.
And a slice of pumpkin pie.
And a slice of pecan pie.
It just isn’t.
And I make all 3 of them myself, usually on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
Are you impressed?
Everyone always raves about all that work I did to make three pies, but all three are so easy that it’s embarrassing.
See, I buy two boxes of pre-made pie crusts. It doesn’t matter whether they’re Pillsbury or the store brand; they’re all flaky and delicious. So I buy the crusts, roll them out into my pretty pie pans, and then I cook the pies. It does take a bit of work, but one evening after work, I take care of it and then it’s done.
To contrast, I make a chocolate cherry cheesecake for Christmas dinner, and I think that is more work than the three pies.
This cherry pie is by far the easiest of the three pies I bake, and it’s a great place for my young daughter to feel like she’s helping.
What makes this cherry pie so easy?
The secret to this cherry pie is that everything is pre-made, and I don’t mean that you make it ahead of time. I mean that you buy it.
Is that cheating? I don’t think it is.
So you take two refrigerated pie crusts and two cans of cherry pie filling, and you plop it all in a pie plate and bake it. Voilà, you’ve got an impressive cherry pie.
