Home-made Cherry Pie with Scrapbook Recipe

Every Tuesday, I get together with a group of friends  to have a potluck dinner and stamp (knit - craft - chat - whatever). We work on our own projects and sometimes even get things done. ;) The group started years before I came into it but it's sure been fun becoming part of it and hope others join us too! :)

This week I didn't get much stamping done but that's because I made pie. Fresh pie. :) I picked cherries at a friend's house on Monday.
Another friend brought some mulberries to stamping on Tuesday so I mixed them with the freshly picked cherry pie filling, rolled out my pie crust and it baked while we were eating. Once dinner was done, we pulled the Kansas State University ice cream out of the freezer and added it to our warm, fresh from the oven pie. Doesn't that look yummy?!
Here's the pie recipe, if you'd like to make your own pie sometime.

For cherry mulberry, reduce the sugar by 1/4 c. enjoy! 

Seleise’s Cherry Pie Filling

4 c. tart, pitted cherries
1 1/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. almond extract
2 2/3 tbsp. quick cooking tapioca
1 1/2 tbsp. butter

Mix 1st five ingredients together. Make pie crust for 2-
crust pie. Line pie pan with crust. Pour in pie filling. Dot
with butter. Cover with 2nd crust and pinch edges. Bake at
450° for 10 minutes. Turn oven down to 350° and bake 40
minutes more.

Hint: cover edges with foil to keep crust from burning.

Push Pastry Pie Crust
1 1/2 c. flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. water (cold)
1/2 c. oil

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix together until
moistened (do not overwork). Roll out between two sheets
of waxed paper, peel and put into pie pan. Hint: For a 1-crust
pie, bake until light brown in a 350° oven.

And, here's the recipe 6X6 scrapbook page I made earlier this year to share the recipe with others. :) 

The Let Freedom Ring stamp set is retiring so be sure to order it before the end of the month, if you want to add it to your collection.

Have a wonderfully creative day and if possible, have some yummy pie too!
