Lots of Love Cherry Pies

Lots of Love Cherry Pies

Ingredients
3-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter, cubed
3/4 cup shortening
9 to 10 tablespoons cold water

FILLING:
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 cups fresh or frozen pitted dark sweet cherries, thawed, halved
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 egg, lightly beaten
Coarse sugar

Directions
In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in butter and shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half; form each into a disk. Wrap separately in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, water, cornstarch and lemon juice until smooth. Add cherries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Stir in extract. Set aside to cool.

On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut out 12 hearts with a floured 4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter. Transfer half of the hearts to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a floured 3/4-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out small hearts from the remaining hearts. (Discard small hearts or reserve for another use.)

Spoon 2 tablespoons cherry mixture onto the center of each solid heart. Brush edges of pastry with egg. Top with cutout hearts; press edges with a fork to seal. Brush tops with egg; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. While tarts are baking, repeat with remaining dough and filling.
Let pies stand for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

Sour Cherry Turnovers

Ingredients:
1 recipe Perfectly Flakey Pie Crust or your favorite pie crust recipe
1 pint sour cherries, pitted
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. flour

Preparation:
Prepare the pie crust recipe. Divide the dough into 6 pieces and pat each one into a 1/2-inch-thick disk. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill for at least an hour and up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl combine the cherries, sugar, and flour. Use your hands to toss the mixture until the juice from the cherries combines with the sugar and flour to make a sand-like mixture coating the cherries.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough disks into 6-inch circles. Place 1/6 of the filling on one side of a circle, fold the dough over to cover the fruit and make a half-circle/moon-shape, crimp the edges, and repeat with the remaining dough and fruit.

Place the turnovers onto a baking sheet and bake until the fruit is bubbling and the crust is browned, about 50 minutes. Let them cool on a wire rack.

Cherries Jubilee

Ingredients
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1 pound fresh, ripe sweet cherries, such as Bing
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon
1/3 cup golden rum

Directions
Evenly scoop the ice cream into 4 dishes or decorative glasses and put in the freezer until ready to serve (this can be done up to 4 hours ahead).

Wash and pit the cherries. Put the cherries and sugar in a large skillet. Peel 2 strips of zest from the lemon in wide strips with a peeler and add to the cherries. Squeeze the juice of half the lemon over the top. Stir to combine evenly. Cover and cook the cherries over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves, about 4 minutes. Uncover and cook over medium-high until cherries get juicy, about 5 minutes more.

To flambe the rum: If cooking over a gas flame, pull the pan off the heat and add the rum. Ignite the alcohol with a long match or one held with tongs. Swirl the pan slightly until the flames subside, about 30 seconds.

If cooking over an electric stove, put the rum in a small sauce pan. Warm it over medium-low heat and carefully light it with a long match or one held with tongs. Pour the lit rum over the cherries, and swirl the pan lightly until the flames subside, about 30 seconds.

Ladle the cherries and their juices over prepared ice cream scoops. Serve immediately.
