What is a cherry pie?
Cherry pie is a pie made with a cherry filling.
Morello cherries (sour cherries) are often used in cherry pies. Cherries are expensive — and sweet varieties are best used eaten fresh and raw. Sour cherries are best for cooking and may be used fresh or preserved. If fresh, extra sugar should be added. Recipes for cherry pie are relatively simple; if fresh, cook the cherries with sugar to taste until soft, then thicken with cornstarch (cornflour). Otherwise, empty the tinned cherries with syrup into a pot, heat, and thicken with cornflour before lining a pie dish with pastry and pouring in the filling.
Although generally eaten in North America, cherry pie is also known in other parts of the world as well.
