blueberries hitting the pie plates at Four & Twenty Blackbirds and today I have it on good authority that they have quite possibly my favorite pie of the summer: sour cherry...
I came from a basically cherryless household. My dad can't stand cherries, so we never had them around. My revelation came in the form of a sour cherry pie made for 4th of July by my high school boyfriend's mom with cherries that she picked from her backyard. I still dream about that pie and this one ranks right up there with it. Tart with just the right amount of sweetness and plenty of juicy whole sour cherries, this is a pie worth changing your plans for.
