Sweet Cherry 🍒 Pie 🥧


Cherries are one of my favorite fruits. Right now they are in season and so good. We are having Sunday dinner at my parent’s place and I said I’d bring dessert. I instantly thought of cherry pie.

Sweet Cherry 🍒 Pie 🥧! I kind of sing that in my head every time I say cherry pie. Sorry if I got that song stuck in your head now. 🙉

Baking isn’t really my thing, but I love simple recipes or semi-homemade recipes that make it look like I was baking for days without doing too much. Pies are so easy when you don’t make the dough. And I tell my self they are healthy because it’s filled with fruit…

This recipe is so easy and so delicious. It goes perfect with homemade whipped cream!-I would keep the whipped cream simple for cherry pie and leave out the cinnamon.

Cherry Pie


  • 1 box of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts
  • 2 cans (21 oz each) of cherry pie filling (This time I used Duncan Hines Original Country cherry pie filling. But you can use any you prefer. One year I found a big jar of delicious cherry pie filling at Trader Joe’s, but I haven’t seen it since. That was really GOOD!)
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 1 tsp of sugar


  1. Preheat oven to bake 425 degrees.
  2. Line a 9 inch pie plate with crust per directions on the box.
  3. Brush the bottom and sides with egg white.
  4. Pour the filling into the pie crust.
  5. Cover with 2nd pie crust per directions on the box.
  6. Seal the edges and flute.
  7. Cut slits in the top crust.
  8. Brush with egg white.
  9. Sprinkle with sugar.
  10. Cover the edges of the crust with aluminum foil or even better a pie crust shield.
  11. Put the pie plate on a baking sheet in case any pie filling spills over when baking.
  12. Bake for 20 minutes.
  13. Remove the foil or pie crust shield and put back in for another 15-20 minutes or until crust is golden brown and the cherries are bubbling.
  14. Cool completely before serving. I make this the day before and chill in the fridge overnight. It tastes amazing with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
