Old Fashioned Cherry Pie with Snowflake Crust is an easy, three ingredient recipe made into an impressive dessert. It seems almost hard to believe that this pretty pie is made with only three ingredients. Cherry pie filling, refrigerated pie crust and white sparkling sugar sprinkles. This impressive looking pie will be great to serve for dessert on Thanksgiving, along with pumpkin pie of course. It takes little to no effort to make and it’s delicious.

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 Touch

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.
