Bings fill in for the usual (but harder to find) sour cherries in this summer pie. A simplified lattice crust gives you all the wows with half the work!

    This was my first time making a Pie of any kind. I used Martha's basic pie dough recipe for the crust. The cherries I used were fresh and very juicy. I thought the filling was a little runny, I may use more cornstarch next time. The flavor was amazing, the whole Family loved it! I will definitely make it again.

    I agree with a previous review, the amount of sugar was just right, the pie dough recipe worked out great and wasn't a lot of work for the results. The filling was an ideal consistency too, thick and satisfying without being too heavy. I already bought more fresh cherries to do this again soon!

    The best recipe for cherry pie I ever made. It came out perfect. The half cup of sugar was enough. Don't even consider adding more. I hoped to go home.with a slice but that wasn't,t to be.

    I used a store pie crust for saving time, but I was disappointed that the pie was so runny. I actually followed the directions and think there isn't enough cornstarch to bind it. I also measured my cherries. It is really good even if runny. Just embarrassing to give away.

    I'll admit it- I cheated. I bought cheap, frozen, pre-pitted cherries for this pie. Everyone thought they were fresh! The pie was fantastic! Now I'll be sure to keep frozen cherries on hand in the event of a pie emergency. This was a hit!

    This pie is awesome. It was a big hit with my family! Tastes sweet and the lattice crust looks beautiful. Be prepared with lots of time to de-pit and half all of the cherries. Also, don't add cornstarch until ready to bake filling. I was lucky to use a "cherry pitter" hand tool to speed things up. My hands stained dark red for a few days!

    side note, if sour cherries aren't available in your area, check for them in the freezer section of your store.

    I was excited to see a sweet cherry pie recipe. I live in Northern Michigan so it is easy for me to get both sweet and sour cherries. The sour cherries make a much better pie. This sweet cherry pie did not have any depth of flavor. I'll stick to the sour cherries for baking.

    Wonderful recipe! I used fresh cherries I'd gotten at the local farmers' market and this pie turned out gorgeous and tasted as good as it looked! The crust recipe is a classic and is really easy to put together in the food processor. The secret to every pie crust is COLD ingredients! I even rolled out the pastry dough trimmings that were left, sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar, rolled it up and cut little spirals. I baked them at 400 until golden--a delish little treat!
