If you’re looking for a delightful dessert that captures the essence of summer, our Charming Cherry Pie Extravaganza is the perfect choice. This sweet and tangy cherry pie is a true crowd-pleaser, and it’s surprisingly easy to make.


  • 2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (for sprinkling)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cherries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, and almond extract. Mix until the cherries are evenly coated. Let the mixture sit for 15 minutes to macerate.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  3. Unroll one pie crust and fit it into a 9-inch pie dish.
  4. Pour the cherry filling into the pie crust.
  5. Unroll the second pie crust and place it over the cherry filling. Trim any excess crust and crimp the edges to seal the pie.
  6. Brush the top crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  7. Make several small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  8. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 1 hour before serving.
