Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pie plate
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for pie plate

    I've made this twice and loved it both times. Second time I used cranberries instead of cherries as they were easier to find at the store. Results still delicious.
