I can't help you with the cherry pie but here's my pumpkin pie recipe:
1 C Sugar
1 Tb Cornstarch
½ tsp Salt, scant
½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Ginger
¼ tsp Nutmeg
1 Can Pumpkin (15 Oz)
2 Eggs, beaten
1½ Tb Butter, melted
⅛ C Molasses
12 Oz Evaporated Milk
1 Dash Lemon Juice
1 Deep-dish Piecrust
Preheat the oven to 450º F.
Sift the sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg together.
Combine the dry mixture with the pumpkin.
Add in the eggs, butter, molasses, milk and lemon juice and combine.
Pour the mixture into the piecrust.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Reduce the temperature to 350º F and bake for another 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean.
Cool for 2 hours and serve immediately or refrigerate.
