  • Pit cherries over bowl to catch juice
  • Cook and cool rhubarb
  • add sugar, tapioca, extracts and corn starch to bowl of fruit
  • toss well with hands and put in fridge to marry
  • Roll out bottom dough to fill pie pan with 1/2 inch overhang
  • put in fridge
  • on parchment roll out top dough to cover pie with 1 inch overhang
  • put in fridge
  • Let dough rest and cherries marinate for about half an hour
  • meanwhile cut 8 little leaves out of scrap dough (see pic) and put them in fridge
  • toss fruit filling and taste..if not sweet enough add more sugar
  • fill pie pan with fruit pour juices over and dab butter on top
  • arrange top crust over filling
  • with finger moisten rim of bottom crust and press crusts' edges together to seal
  • fold top edge under bottom edge and pinch crimp all around
  • cut 8 small slits in top crust to vent and to score the pie for cutting.
  • moisten bottoms of leaves and place them in center of each piece
  • egg wash crust and sprinkle with sugar if you're in the mood
  • bake in preheated 325F 350F oven til nicely browned and bubbling.
  • Cool on rack til warm and serve with vanilla ice cream. oh mama.
  • The best way I've found to pit cherries is with a chopstick..just push it in the stem end and the pit usuall pops out on the side..The closer to whole the cherry can stay the better.

    This is so good. My friend and myself will admit we gorged ourselves on this; with hot cups of coffee and cold glasses of milk. Thanks so much for adding to my pie repertoire!
