My three little kittens definitely got their mittens dirty with this cherry pie.
For the crust, I mix 2 1/2 cups of flour with two stick of chopped, frozen butter, a spoonful of sugar and salt, and enough cold water to make it crumbly, but hold together-about 1/4 cup.
I used the food processor to mix the dough and then put it in Saran wrap in the freezer until I'm ready to roll it.
I forget how good homemade pie crust really is and it really is pretty simple.
Little J helped me make the crust and filling. I winged the filling, but it turned out great. I used two cans of drained tart cherries, mixed with a little sugar, and a spoonful of flour.
Juiciness and Sassyfras used cherry scented play dough to make their own pies. Just add cherry kool-aid to the traditional play dough recipe.
Mini pie pans would have been cute, but I only had a couple of mini springform pans...which they were thrilled with.
