Old Fashioned Cherry Pie
with Snowflake Crust
Fast and Easy
With the busy holidays fast approaching, your guests will be impressed when they see old-fashioned cherry pie with snowflake crust. They’ll think you worked all day on this pie. You can use a prepared canned cherry pie filling or if you have canned your own, you can use that. Same goes for the crust, you can certainly make your own, from scratch crust or use two refrigerated pie crusts. For convenience we used the refrigerated kind but the Cherry Pie Filling is homemade.
Sparkling sugar adds a special touch to this already beautiful pie. White sparkling sugar sprinkles is used for a sparkling snow effect. Wilton sparkling sugar can be purchased pretty much anywhere. You can order sparkling sugar online at King Arthur Flour and Bob’s Red Mill. If you don’t have a snow flake cookie cutter, you can substitute any holiday cookie cutter that you have.
So easy and so impressive!
