Ingredients
1-1/4 cups sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Dash salt
4 cups pitted tart cherries
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
Star cookie cutters (1/2 inch and 2 inches)
Confectioners’ sugar

Directions
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt; stir in cherries. Let stand 30 minutes.

To make pie: Preheat oven to 375°. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; add filling. (If filling is frozen, thaw in the refrigerator overnight.) Flute edges of pastry. Bake 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cover edges during the last 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning.

Swedish Tea Ring

Ingredients
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
1-1/2 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup canola oil
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
1-1/4 teaspoons salt
5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped maraschino cherries, patted dry
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted

ICING:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons fat-free milk

Directions
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the sugar, oil, egg whites, salt and 1 cup flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

Combine the walnuts, cherries, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Punch dough down; roll into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Brush with butter; sprinkle with nut mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.

Place seam side down on a 14-in. pizza pan coated with cooking spray; pinch ends together to form a ring. With scissors, cut from outside edge two-thirds of the way toward center of ring at scant 1-in. intervals. Separate strips slightly; twist to allow filling to show. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 40 minutes.

Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.

In a small bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar and enough milk to achieve desired consistency; drizzle over tea ring. Yield: 1 ring (24 slices).
