Nutrition: per serving



  • 500 g Cherries Fresh, pitted
  • 200 g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 50 g Cornflour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 sheets Shortcrust Pastry Ready-made
  • 1 Egg Beaten


  • Preheat your oven to 200°C/400°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the pitted cherries, sugar, cornflour, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly.
  • Roll out one sheet of shortcrust pastry and use it to line a 9-inch pie dish.
  • Pour the cherry mixture into the pastry-lined dish.
  • Roll out the second sheet of pastry and use it to cover the top of the pie. Crimp the edges of the pastry together to seal the pie.
  • Use a sharp knife to make a few small slits in the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape.
  • Brush the beaten egg over the top of the pastry.
  • Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  • Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy your delicious cherry pie!
