Cherry Pie

*Use a deep dish pie plate for this. This is so yummy everyone will be screaming for more, I guarantee!!!

6 cups (3 cans) cherries (drained) ***
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup flour
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp lemon juice

Jane’s Pie Crust

1 cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
4-6 tlbs cold water

Bake 425 for 30-40 minutes.

This crust recipe is doubled (half for the bottom, other half for lattice top). I also use Jane’s recipe for a meat pie - To use it for a single crust ½ it.

***Important, you MUST use "Oregon" brand pie cherries. They can be difficult to find. I found them at my local Wal-Mart. They were with the canned fruit, not the pie filling. So try looking in both places in your store.
