2 jars of Dark Cherries in Syrup (470g jars)
20g of cornflour
30 mls of water
25 g sugar
egg and milk beaten together to glaze the pie.
Strain the syrup from the cherries and place in a pan. Warm the pan of syrup, until it reaches a slow simmer. Add the sugar and stir. Mix the cornflour with the water and add it to the syrup, simmer and stir for a couple of minutes until the syrup has thickened. Gently stir the cherries into the syrup and let it cool. Line your pie dish with pastry. Put the cherries in the pie and top with a pastry lid. Brush the lid with a mixture of beaten egg and milk.
Bake in a medium to hot oven for 30 - 40 minutes until the pie is golden brown and shouting 'Eat Me!' when you look at it!
Your comments on yesterdays post made me laugh, yep I was/ am happy, sunshine and Spring flowers are meant to do that! I also discovered wisdom in my Doormat. . . . If you are going to be a doormat . . . there is nothing to stop you being a glam, happy doormat. Hoorah for doormats everywhere. Love your doormat today! I think National Doormat Day would be good, the one day where you pay homage to trusty old doormats, a bit like 'Mothers Day'. Talking of National Days...my day got even happier when I discovered Here at Lavender and Lovage it is National Chip Week! Blimey life is so bright you gotta wear shades! Pancake day and National Chip Week in the same week. If National Chip Week has passed you by so far, the great news is you still have time to catch up. Chips chips chips! Eat as many as you can! Chip Butty for lunch and Egg and chips for tea! Now that is fine dining! Pop over to Lavender and Lovage for fascinating chip facts and a new spin on the humble chip 'Crispy Squashed Chips' I am definitely crisping and squashing my chips from now on.
Happy Pie Day Friday Folks. . . hope you are all having a good one. X
