Sweet Cherry Pie
Why This Recipe Works
To tame the cherries’ sweetness and get them to break down to the proper, juicy texture in our sweet cherry pie recipe, we cut back on the amount of sugar we were using and added some pureed plums. We cut the sweet cherries in half and tossed some of them into the food processor along with the plums, then strained out the chewy skins for a soft filling. Finally, we placed the sweet cherry pie on a preheated baking sheet to ensure that the bottom crust crisped up before the fruit filling could seep through.
