Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, made with all butter
  • 21-ounce can Comstock Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Thaw out one sheet of frozen puff pastry dough and roll out into two circles. If you prefer a lace top pie cut one circle in about 12 3/4 inch strips.
  3. Place one circle of the puff pastry on the bottom of the pie dish
  4. Drain the cherries and place the liquid in a small saucepan.
  5. Over a low heat whisk in the cornstarch and lemon juice and mix well
  6. Pour the cherry mixture in the prepared pie dish.
  7. Cover the top of the pie with the 3/4 inch strips and interlace on the top of the pie filling. Seal edges by pinching along the edges. Brush egg whites on top crust.
