Clem’s apple and cherry pie

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.

Let cool and then serve with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream. Let us know how your pie turned out in the comments below!
