Tart cherries, sweet apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter go into this sweet pie. It bakes up golden brown on the inside and a wonderful cherry pink on the inside.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 cup dried cherries
- 4 cups thinly sliced apples
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
Combine cherries and apple slices in a large bowl. Stir together sugar, flour, and cinnamon; mix well with fruit. Let stand 15 minutes.
Spread fruit mixture into pastry lined 9 inch pie pan. Dot with butter or margarine. Cover with top crust. Seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in the crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 40 to 50 minutes, or until edge is golden brown and apples are tender.
