Preparation: 2 hours
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

For Crust:

  • 1boxpuff pastry,frozen , thawed in the refrigerator
  • 1large egg,beaten with 2 tsp milk
  • sugar,coarse for garnish

For Filling:

  • tbspcornstarch
  • tspwater,room temperature
  • 12ozcherries,frozen
  • ½cupgranulated sugar,100g
  • 1tsplemon juice
  • tspsalt
  • 1tsppure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Mix the cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until combined and milky. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, combine the cherries, sugar, lemon juice, and salt.

  2. Stirring occasionally with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, cook over medium heat until the cherries begin to release their juices– about 4 to 6 minutes.

  3. Stir in the cornstarch mixture, then bring to a boil while stirring often. Once boiling, remove from heat then stir in the vanilla.

  4. Allow cooling completely at room temperature. The filling can be made up to 5 days in advance and stored in the refrigerator.

  5. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. On a lightly floured surface, lay out one pastry sheet.

  6. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut the sheet into 6 rectangles.

  7. 3 of these rectangles will be the bottom pastry pie crust, 3 will be the top. Transfer the 3 bottom rectangles to the prepared baking sheet.

  8. Using a pastry brush, brush the edges of the bottom rectangles with the egg wash.

  9. Spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons of cooled cherry mixture onto each of the 3 bottom rectangles. Place the top rectangles over the cherry filling.

  10. Crimp the edges with a fork to seal them shut. Repeat this entire step with the 2nd pastry sheet so you have a total of 6 pastry pies.

  11. Slice 2 to 3 slits in the tops for air vents.

  12. Brush the tops of the pastry pies with egg wash, then sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  13. Chill the pies in the refrigerator for at least 25 minutes or up to 1 day.

  14. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  15. Bake the pastry pies for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown. Make sure to rotate the baking sheet once or twice during bake time.

  16. Remove pies from the oven and allow to cool on the pan until ready to handle and serve. Wrap each leftover pastry pie up tightly in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
