This was our first cherry pie we have ever made, and we were overall very pleased. We used a different pie crust recipe, but it was very similar to the one above. The key is to make sure your butter or shortening and water are very cold and make sure you add the water a table spoon or two at a time, and stop adding the water when your dough is coming together. The cherry filling was delicious. I gave it plenty of time to simmer and cool on the stove and it was not too runny at all. We used frozen tart cherries because that is all we could find in the grocery store, drained some of the juice, and they worked perfectly. They ended up tasting very similar to canned cherries but I would like to think they were superior. The only downside to this recipe was the cost, the frozen cherries for one pie were about $8, but it was worth doing homemade in the end and we are going to try make it with fresh cherries when they are in season and try it again. But overall, very good and very pleased!
