Easy 5 Ingredient Cherry Pie: Dairy & Egg Free

I’ve literally been wanting to write this post for a year now! I’m working on another post filled with links to dairy and egg free recipes for the holidays. That has finally motivated me to get this done!

Soon I will also share a dairy, egg & cinnamon free apple pie. It’s a great pie! So is this cherry pie. What can I say? We love homemade pies!

It is lovely that this recipe only uses 5 ingredients. I could make a homemade crust (and please feel free to make your own!) but I make so many other things from scratch, that I LOVE using this crust.

The recipe was adapted from the following two recipes. Click here and here to read the original recipes.

Cherry Pie

Ingredients:

For Filling:

  • 3 bags of frozen pitted cherries
  • 3/4 c sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/3 c cornstarch

For Crust:

Directions:

  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place all filling ingredients in medium sized pan and bring to a boil, stirring gently. Once it boils, lower to a simmer until the filling thickens. Take off of the heat and let cool slightly.
  3. In a pie pan, center one of the pie crusts. It will hang over the edge of pan.
  4. Pour the cooled filling into the pie pan.
  5. Center the other pie crust and put it gently over the cherry pie filling.
  6. Roll the top pie crust under the bottom pie crust. You might have bumpy large lumps in some parts but that doesn’t bother me. 🙂
  7. Use a fork to crimp the rolled together edges or use your fingers to crimp the edges.
  8. Use a sharp knife to make a few slits in the pie crust.
  9. Sprinkle a little bit of white sugar on top. (optional)
  10. Place pie on a cookie sheet (in case of overflow) and bake for approximately 50 minutes.
  11. Let cool. Enjoy!
