Preparation time: 45 minutes
Baking time: 50 minutes

 

Ingredients
    Crust
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup cold LAND O LAKES® Butter
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons cold water

    Filling
    1 cup sugar
    1/3 cup all purpose flour
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    2 (14.5-ounce) cans red tart pitted cherries, drained
    1 teaspoon grated orange peel

     

  • Milk
  • Sugar

    Preparation

    ¨ Heat oven to 400° F. Combine 2 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt in large bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork just until flour is moistened.

    ¨ Divide dough in half; shape each half into ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap 1 ball of dough in plastic food wrap; refrigerate. Roll out remaining ball of dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into 9 inch pie pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Set aside.

    ¨ Combine sugar, 1/3 cup flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt in large bowl. Add cherries and orange peel; toss lightly to coat. Spoon into prepared crust. ¨ Roll out remaining ball of dough to 11-inch circle. Cut circle into 10 (1/2-inch) strips with sharp knife or pastry wheel. Place 5 strips across filling in pie pan, 1 inch apart. Place remaining 5 strips at right angles, 1 inch apart, to the strips already in place; trim strips. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over strips; build up an edge. Seal; crimp or flute edge. Brush strips with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip of aluminum foil.

    ¨ Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling bubbles in center. Remove aluminum foil during last 5 minutes, if desired. (If browning too quickly, shield lattice strips with aluminum foil.)
