May 30, 2015


1Preheat Oven to 425 Degrees Fahrenheit.

2Combine 1 egg and 1 Tablespoon of water to make an egg glaze.

3In 9-inch glass pie pan, place 1 piece of pastry. Brush the whole pastry over with the egg glaze. Keep the pie crust in the refrigerator while you make this filling.

4In a bowl, combine cherries, flour, salt, agave, and extract. Stir and let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.

5Spoon the mixture into the prepared crust. Evenly spread out the butter cubes on top. Use the egg glaze to moisten the rim of the pie.

6Roll-out the second pastry on a flat surface until it is 1/8-inch thick. Cut it into 1/2 inch strips. Lay the strips across the top (Like in the picture) and make sure that the pastries are pinched together at the edges. Brush the top crust with the egg glaze.

7Bake for 20 minutes. Put foil around the crust edges to protect from burning, Bake for 20 more minutes.
