Cherry Baked Oatmeal

Cherry Cheesecake FroYo Pop

Cherry Tart
Crust Ingredients:
2 ½ cups flour
½ tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
¼-½ cup cold water

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and sugar. Add butter and mix until it reaches the consistency of breadcrumbs. Add ¼ cup of ice water and begin to mix. If mixture is too dry, add some more water until dough comes together into a ball. Divide into two balls. Cover each ball in plastic wrap and let sit in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Do not over knead dough to avoid tough crust.

Filling Ingredients:
3 cups pitted cherries
2 tbsp cornstarch
¼-1 cup sugar, depending on if you are using sour or sweet cherries
½ lemon, juiced
1 egg, beaten for egg wash
1 tbsp sugar for sprinkling

In a large bowl, mix together cherries, cornstarch, sugar and lemon juice. Set aside. Once dough has rested, on a well floured surface, roll out dough to fit your well greased baking dish. Line the base of your pie plate or tart shell with dough. Fill dish with cherry mixture. To create a lattice top, cut rolled out dough into ½ inch strips. Created a lattice pattern on pie and brush top of tart with egg wash and sprinkle over sugar. Bake at 350ºF for 40-45 minutes, or until crust is golden. If crust is browning too quickly, loosely cover with foil.  Allow pie to cool before serving.
Enjoy!
*Tip: bake pie on a foil-lined baking sheet to catch any juices that may bubble out of pie.
