Cherry Pie!!

 My friend gave me a bag of freshly picked cherry from the orchard at the start of cherry season. Like blueberries and grapes, I like to eat them raw as snacks. After a couple cherries, I decided to make something quick out of them also since they are fresh. Here is a super duper quick prep semi-homemade cherry pie recipe.

~make 4 mini pies


Store bought puff pastry dough
1 cup of pitted and halves cherries
1/4 cup of cream
1 tablespoon of sugar

1. In a saucepan, sauteed and mix cherries with sugar.
2. When the cherries begin to soften a bit, add the cream.
3. After the cream starts to reduce and simmer, turn off heat, set aside to cool, and place in refridgerator until cold.
4. Preheat oven to 375F.
5. Meanwhile, place and wrap the puff pastry on the mini pie or tart tin. Use a fork to poke gently onto the pastry dough.
6. Place chilled cherries mixture into the puff pastry.
7. Cover with another sheet of puff pastry, roll in the side to seal the pie.
8. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.

Let cool and enjoy! Try serving it with some chocolate ice cream!
