Father's Day Cherry Pie

This Sunday is Father's Day and that means my husband's favorite pie. I thought you might like to try it for your Father's Day celebration or picnic. Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Father's Day to all of the terrific Dads out there and to those wonderful people who represent Dad to so many who love them.

Let's Make It! Place tapioca in a spice or coffee grinder; process until finely ground.
Combine tapioca, cherries, sugar, lemon, almond extract and salt in a large bowl, combine well.
Let cherry mixture stand 30 minutes; stir to coat well.
 Roll 1 (9-inch) dough portion into an 11-inch circle. Fit dough into pie dish coated , allowing dough to extend over edge of plate.
Spoon cherry mixture and any remaining liquid into dough.
Roll remaining (9-inch) dough portion into a 12-inch circle.
Cut dough into 12 (1-inch-wide) strips; arrange in a lattice pattern over cherry mixture.
Fold edges under; crimp with the back of a fork.
Combine 2 Tbsp water and egg white in a small bowl. Brush the egg white mixture over dough on top of pie,
and sprinkle dough evenly with 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar.
Bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
Loosely cover edges of pie-crust with foil, and bake an additional 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is thick and bubbly.
 Cool pie in pan for 45 minutes on a wire rack.

Sounds and looks scrumptious, but what in the world is turbinado sugar?

Katherine ( Katie) Corrigan said...

Turbinado sugar is also known as turbinated sugar, it is made from sugar cane extract. It is produced by crushing freshly cut sugar cane; the juice obtained is evaporated by heat, then crystallized. It turns to light brown crystals. Great for sprinkling on the top of a pie , :-)
