Recipe used here: http://www.cakestudent.com/sweetheart-cherry-pies/
- Butter, melted
- About 1 teaspoon of sugar
- Pie dough (you can make your own, but since I’ve never done that, I just bought some)
- Ricotta cheese
- Cherries (There weren’t any fresh at my grocery store so I bought some cherry pie filling)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Roll the pie dough, flour helps the dough to not be sticky, and cut hearts (I used a cutter, of course). Line the hearts on a baking sheet with parchment paper on it.
Mix about 1 teaspoon of sugar to the cherries (I don’t know if it was necessary since I used pie filling, but I still did it). Put a bit of ricotta cheese on the hearts, then the cherries. The amount you put will depend on how much you want on it and how big your hearts are. Just remember not to put too much or else the top of the pie will burst.
Cut some more hearts in your dough and put them on top of the others. Press the edges with a fork to seel the dough. Brush a bit of melted butter on top of the pies and put in the oven. The recipe says 15 minutes, but for me it took about 25 minutes. You know your pie is ready when it’s golden brown.
There you go! A delicious cherry pie in the shape of a heart!
Until Next Time!
