Needed: One good cherry pie recipe...

I'm on a mission, dear readers. A mission to find a great cherry pie recipe (or two). There are plenty on the Internet and a few in my cookbooks, but I would really like to have a recipe someone has actually tried - and loved.
Why is this so important? Because I promised my sweetie I'd make him a cherry pie. (Just plain cherry - no berry blends.) This coming weekend. And then I realized - hmmm, I haven't actually made a cherry pie before. I've made other pies, but never a cherry one. And I'd prefer to just make a good one the first time out, rather than experiment. So, if you have a recipe you would recommend...


  1. I know you said you didn't want one from the internet, but if you look on you can sort the recipes by rating. People rate and review the recipes and I often pick them by the people's comments....I wish I could help but I think I've only made 1 pie in my entire life. good luck!

  2. Well, I wish I could help on your quest! I have a really good apple pie recipe though, ha! I can't wait to see what you come up with!


  3. Kathie, that's a good idea. I went and checked and they do have a cherry pie recipe that has gotten rave reviews, so I might try that one.

  4. Well, I'm sorry I missed this in time for the weekend, but then, you may have more cherries to make into more pies.

    May I suggest two recipes I love to use with the cherries from our sour cherry Evans tree.

    They're both listed on the sidebar of my recipe site:

    Happy Baking.........

  5. The only cherry pie that I ever made was this one..
    I enjoyed it! I usually have pretty good luck with the recipes on Joy of
    Not sure if it's exactly what you are looking for or not though. :)
    Good luck!


  6. Have you ever checked out Smitten Kitchen? We don't have cherries here, ever (booo). But she recently posted some wonderful-looking recipes! And everything I try from her is wonderful! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Here's the latest cherry pie recipe, but there are others:

  7. That is so sweet! When I bake Sarah Lee always helps me... good luck finding the right recipe.

  8. Thanks, all! I'll let you know how things turn out. :)
