Thank you :)
I never make my own pie crust, I use Pillsbury refridgerated crusts. They have always turned out great. If you like cherry pie - I mix canned cherry pie filling with thawed dark sweet cherries. Save the juice from the thawed cherries and add enough water to make 1/4 cup, and add two tablespoons of corn starch, stir and let sit for 10 mins.
Add 1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar to the pie filling or sweeten to taste, add 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger. Stir and mix the cornstarch liquid with the pie filling. Pour into a prepared pie crust. Dot with a tablespoon of butter and cover with the second crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 mins, then turn the oven down to 400 degrees and bake for 35-40 mins. You should cover the edge of the crust with foil to prevent burning and remove the foil about 5 mins before the pie is done.
Hope this works for you.
