Cherry Pie Filling
I make this Cherry Pie Filling recipe when I have a lot of cherries and I keep it in my freezer to have on standby when I am craving cherry pie. Sometimes I forget about it until winter and when I remember to use the cherry pie filling in a pie, I am instantly transported to summer again! It’s like a gift to future me!
Making this homemade cherry pie filling couldn’t be easier. I start by heating red cherries in a saucepan until they are soft and the juice bursts out of them. In a separate bowl I mix together sugar and cornstarch which I add to the cherries. Once the filling thickens, I remove the saucepan from the heat and leave the mixture to cool completely before using.
