Double crust Cherry Pie (Pie de cerezas)


Before talking about the recipe itself, we have been very rare days, apart from the pandemic,  being in summer, we have had an electrical storm of rain, thunder and lightning.

Not even in the winter we had one like that.

As a consequence we were without energy for more than two days, so I made this recipe almost by candlelight.

A cherry pie, taking advantage of the fact that I had frozen cherries (many things were thawing) I made this delicious pie, it can be made with frozen cherries or jarred or natural of course.

The crust of this pie is amazing!!!

I send my love and greetings to all of you as always!

  12. Two days without electricity! That happened to us once after a storm when our girls still lived at home. They had to study for exams by lantern light. I hope you didn't lose and perishable food in your refrigerator or freezer. Your cherry pie turned out beautifully and I assume your oven is gas and not electric. :) Warm hugs, Gloria. xoxo

  20. I love your cherry pie, Gloria - though I am sorry for the power outage. That must be hard when it is for a long time. I especially love the cherry cutouts on top of the pie - so cute! It will be a long time before we get fresh cherries, so I might have to make it with frozen, which I have discovered are not bad.

    1. Thanks David yes really I use frozen cherries sometimes and for pies are so good.I hope to make other recipe with cherries still.
      Thanks so much David.
      The crust Is wonderful!
