Cherry Pie

In this recipe I combined my favorite dough from the Crescent rolls with jam and of course the cherry filling. The pie comes out very soft, flavorful - I really liked the combination and I will definitely repeat it, I recommend you to try.

The quantities in the recipe below are for a large stove tray - if you want to make the pie in a 28 cm round tray, put all the ingredients in half.


2 pieces
+ 1 yolk to grease the pie on top
100 g
Bakers yeast
50 g
100 g
+4 tablespoons of sugar for the cherry filling
200 ml
White flour
400 g
0.25 tsp
Pitted cherries
800 g
after you pit 1 kg of cherries
Corn starch
2 tbsp

Step by step

Step 1

Prepare the dough according to the recipe here. Let it rise for about 1 hour.

During this time, pit the cherries and let them drain the juice.

Step 2

Then divide the dough into 2 pieces - one slightly larger than the other.

Set the smaller piece aside.

Step 3

Spread the other larger piece in a sheet as large as the stove tray and pass it in it - greased with a little oil or spread with baking paper.

The cherries drained well of the juice are mixed with the starch and the 4 tablespoons of sugar.

Arrange them over the top of the tray and bring the edges of the dough a little over the layer of cherries.

Step 6

From the remaining piece of dough, take a small ball and spread it on the table with the foil.

Cut thin slices of dough from it to cover the top of the pie - you can cut various shapes here - slices, etc.

Step 7

That's what it should look like in the end - I omitted the popcorn, but they were placed on the edges.

Grease the pie with egg yolk and put it in the preheated oven at 160 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Step 8

Even if you notice that there is a piece of dough left, don't try to put it on the pie - too much dough doesn't do well, it will cover the taste of the cherries and the fragility of the pie.

From what remains you can make some cherry croissants, I made 3 braided pretzels, greased with yolk and sprinkled with sesame. I baked them after I took the pie out of the oven.

Step 9

And one more thing - due to the yolk the pie will brown nicely, but faster - be careful for the first 20 minutes, if you notice that the pie has already browned, cover it with aluminum foil and leave it in the oven all the time - to cook well and cherries.

After the oven, let it cool completely, covered with a towel, directly in the tray - I prefer to do it in the evening and let it cool overnight and soften better.

Good appetite!
