The holidays are always a great excuse to make a pie. This apple and cherry pie is super easy to make and the cherries make a nice variation on a Christmas staple. Use store-bought pastry or make your own (we prefer homemade)!
Prepare the filling
Mix together the corn starch, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and zest.
Peel, core, slice 4 Granny Smith apples. Layer sliced apples into a pastry lined pie pan. Sprinkle 1⁄2 c dried cherries over the sliced apples, then sprinkle over the dry mix.
Add the top pastry
Cover with top pastry (if solid layer, cut vent holes).
Bake 375 degrees convection (400 regular) for 45 minutes or until bubbling.
