Prep Time: 50 minutes
Cook Time: 30-35 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
- 2 Grissom’s Pie Crust
- 1 can Ginger Evans Cherry Pie Filling
- World’s Fair Whipped Topping, as desired
- 1 Good Nature Egg
- Preheat oven to 425℉.
- Bring crusts to room temperature. Remove sleeves from the box. Let stand at room temperature for 15- 20 minutes or Microwave on defrost (30% power) for 10-20 seconds per sleeve. If frozen thaw for 50 minutes, do not microwave.
- Unroll the crusts and place in an ungreased 9-inch pie pan (glass recommended) press crust firmly against sides and bottom.
- Trim bottom crust to the pie pan edge.
- Add the desired filling.
- Then lattice the top. Cut the top dough into even strips, 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch wide.
- Lay 6 strips vertically and evenly spaced on top of the filled pie. Use the longer strips in the center of the pie and the shorter strips on the ends.
- Fold every other strip (3 in total) all the way back so they’re almost falling off of the pie. Lay one of the 6 unused strips perpendicular on top.
- Unfold the 3 vertical strips back so they lay over the perpendicular strip. You have 5 strips left.
- Repeat with last 4 strips, weaving the strips over and under one another.
- Now fold the excess dough that hangs over the edges of the pie back and pinch them with the bottom pie crust.
- Next, mix your egg with a splash of milk to create your egg wash (water works as well) and Brush the top of your crust.
- For the best outcome, refrigerate your pie for 30 minutes prior to baking. Before baking cover the crust with aluminum foil.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden brown and bubbling. Remove from oven, let rest for 10-20 minutes then enjoy. Top with Whipped Cream.
- Add melted butter or any other flavoring desired mixed into the filling.
- Add some sugar to your egg wash for an extra sheen on your pie
- You can bypass the lattice portion of the crust and just place 2nd crust on top, cut 4 slits for ventilation, crimp, then brush the top
- Subsitute the cherry filling for apple if desired
