Gluten-Free Cherry Pie

Ingredients:

Gluten-Free Pie Crust*

2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Baking Mix

1 tablespoon Powdered Sugar

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter, very cold, cut into small pieces

3-4 tablespoons Ice Water

Filling

4 cups Cherries, fresh or frozen,pits removed

1/4 cup Corn Starch

3/4 cup Sugar, plus for sprinkle

1/4 cup Honey

2 teaspoons fresh Orange Juice

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1/4 teaspoon Almond Extract

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9″ pie pan or 3 individual sized pie pans. 

In a mixing bowl, combine gluten-free-flour, powdered sugar, and salt. Using a pastry blender or your hands, cut in the butter until only pea size pieces remain. Stir in the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until dough comes together. Knead the dough a few times. Form into a disc and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for 2-3 hours before rolling. 

Place the dough on a lightly floured (with gluten-free flour, if using) surface. Roll in 1/4″ thick disc. Transfer the dough to the pie pan. Cover and chill until filling is made.

To make the filling combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir well to thoroughly combine all ingredients. Place in the center of the pie dish or evenly distribute among the individual pie pans.

Place the pie on a baking sheet, bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and continue cooking for an additional 25-30 minutes until crust is golden brown.

Let cool before serving.
