Everyone loves pie!  I prefer a streusel or crumb topped pie than a traditional pie crust topping, and so I combined a few recipes into this cherry pie.

You’ll need:

  • recipe for 1 pie crust or frozen, deep dish pie crust
  • 2 pounds pitted fresh cherries
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter

Preheat oven to 375.

In a saucepan, combine the cherries, sugar, and cornstarch and bring it to a boil, stirring constantly.  Reduce the heat and stir until the juices are translucent (just another minute or two).

In a food processor (or with a pastry cutter), combine the flour, brown sugar, and butter until crumbly.

Allow the cherry mixture to cool, and pour them into the pie crust.

Top with the streusel topping, and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes.  I recommend baking the pie on a foil lined pan to catch all the drips.
