Easy Cherry Pie for Valentine’s Day

I had no idea that a pie like this could be called “Easy Cherry Pie” but it is!

And YOU can make it! YOU can make it, and YOU can make it, and, YES, YOU in the back can make it. I was always intimidated by pies but I’ve watched my mom make sweet and savory pies for years like it was nothing. I remember the cutting of the dough particularly. Little shapes make me so happy. My favorite pies she makes are chicken pie and raspberry pie. I mean, how often do you have raspberry pie? In fact, I thought about posting a raspberry pie recipe instead, but this easy cherry pie is exactly that. Easy. So after I see her next, I can share her raspberry pie recipe. I think I need to visit New Jersey to do so because she always has a festive tablescape set.

And let’s not forget that ample dining room light.

Easy Cherry Pie for Valentine’s Day:

What You Need:

For the dough:
1 stick butter, softened
6 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt

For the filling:
1 package frozen cherries
2 Tbsp cornstarch
9 oz. cream cheese
6 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp powdered sugar

What You Do:

1 – To prep, make the dough by beating butter, powdered sugar, egg, flour, and then salt (in that order) in a mixer – dough should be soft.

2 – Put the dough in the fridge for 1 hour and then take it out and divide it into two parts to roll out with a rolling pin.

3 – Meanwhile for the filling, put cherries and sugar in a saucepan and heat on medium, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely melted.

4 – Stir a little water with cornstarch to add to the cherries, and then leave the filling mixture to cool.

5 – Scoop cream cheese (or mascarpone) in a large bowl and add powdered sugar, and then mix everything together.

6 – Put the dough in the pie plate, and then add the cream on the base of the dough, and then place the cherry filling on top; then cut out hearts from the remaining dough and put them on top of the filling.

7 – Bake the whole thing in a preheated 425 degree oven for 40-45 minutes, and cool completely.
