Watch how to make a super-simple and delicious cherry-filled pastry. It’s like the most amazing homemade cherry pop-tart ever! You can use any pie filling for this fold-it-up: cherry, apple, blueberry, or otherwise. But Chef John is going all out here, using candied maraschino cherries from Italy. In this video, you’ll see how to make simple pie dough, which includes a top-secret liquid ingredient (hint: it’s booze!) that will give the crust an extra flakey structure. You’ll also see how to fold up the round pie dough into nice big folds and dust it generously with white sugar. If your favorite part of pie is the crispy crust that’s soaked with fruit-filling deliciousness, then this is the pastry for you.
