Cherry Pie Recipe

Save Recipe

This delicious homemade cherry pie recipe is made with fresh picked cherries and a few simple ingredients.




  1. Place the cherries, sugar, flour and cornstarch in a saucepan.
  2. Add in a pinch (quite literally) of ground sea salt.
  3. Top that off with fresh ground cinnamon and nutmeg (to taste, so go lightly at first). I generally start with about a Tablespoon of cinnamon and make four turns on the nutmeg grinder, which I estimate would be about 1/8 of a teaspoon.
  4. Sit the pan on medium heat. You need to keep an eye on the cherry mixture making sure to stir it on a regular basis so it doesn’t burn.
  5. Once it starts to bubble, remove it from the heat.
  6. Place the first pie crust in the bottom of the pie pan.
  7. Press the edges to the top of the pan. If you are using a pie crust that is pre-formed, you can skip this step.
  8. Pour the filling on top of the pie crust.
  9. You can add a second crust to the top, add lattice or bake it just like it is. That is your choice.
  10. Cover the edges of the pie crust with a pie crust cover or foil so it doesn’t burn while the rest of the cherry pie is baking.
  11. Place the cherry pie in the oven and bake it. I bake my cherry pie at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. The amount of time can vary depending on where you live and your oven.
  12. Allow the pie to cool for 10 minutes once you remove it from the oven.
  13. Enjoy your homemade cherry pie recipe.
