Ingredients

  • 375g packet all-butter puff pastry
  • Beaten egg, to glaze
  • 1-2 tbps granulated sugar
For the filling:
  • 750g-1kg cherries, stoned and halved
  • 4 level tbps caster sugar
  • 2 level tbps cornflour
  • Finely zested rind of 1 lemon
  • Custard or cream, to serve
  • Pie dish, about 25cm in diameter

This pie is also good made with all-butter shortcrust pastry rather than puff pastry.

Method

  1. Set the oven to 220C/425F/Gas Mark 7 and put the pie dish in the oven to heat up.
  2. Roll out about three-quarters of the pastry and line the pie dish, leaving it hanging over the edge of the dish.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the cherries, sugar, cornflour and lemon rind, then tip the mixture onto the pastry base.
  4. Roll out the remaining pastry and cut into strips 2-3cm wide, re-rolling as necessary.
  5. Brush water around the pastry on the rim of the dish and place the pastry strips on top, pressing them down well at the ends. Trim away the excess pastry around the dishs rim, and press well with your thumb to pattern around the edge, and make cuts into it using a small knife.
  6. Place the pie dish on the hot baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 for a further 30-40 mins until the pastry is cooked, and the cherries feel tender when pierced with the tip of a knife or a skewer.
  7. Remove the pie from the oven and serve hot or warm with custard or cream.
