Directions

  1. Place cherries into a saucepan over medium heat, and cover the pan; heat cherries until they release their juice and come to a simmer, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir often.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the sugar with cornstarch until smooth; pour the mixture into the hot cherries and juice, and thoroughly combine. Return to low heat, bring to a simmer, and cook until the filling has thickened, about 2 minutes; remove from heat, let cool, and use as pie filling.

This is exactly how Grandma taught me how to make pie filling, only sometimes she'd add a tablespoon of lemon juice if the cherries turned out too sweet. This is a great recipe to take advantage of all those beautiful Washington cherries.

Didn't turn out for me. I followed the directions exactly. The taste was okay but I could taste cornstarch even though it was mixed all the way. Never thickened up.

someone gave me cherries this weekend .... it is way to hot to be baking, so I decided to make the filling now and bake later. This filling is wonderful..... It tastes so good I wonder if I will even get a pie, what I don't just eat with a spoon may go over ice cream or on waffles!!! (and I doubled the recipe)

Very good. I made a double batch and froze the extra for a pie later.

This was excellent! I cut it in half and used it with the Jenny's Black Forest Cake recipe. Not too sweet, but a perfect complement with chocolate cake! :-) Thanks. Update*** I used 1 1/2 cups cherries, 1/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbs cornstarch. It was the perfect amount to fill a 2 layer black forest cake!

I made this from bing cherries as a tart filling and it was delicious!! I, too, used a little lemon juice as I would for fruit jams and preserves. I'm so glad I had enough filling left over to use as a jam spread on my toast and even over ice cream!

This was delicious and very easy to make! The only revision I made was to add 1 Tblspoon lemon juice to make it a little more tart. I will definitely make it again.
