Method

  • Combine the flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, half a teaspoon salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Combine with the cold butter using your fingers until you reach the consistency of thick breadcrumbs. Stir in the ice water with a fork, just enough so that the dough holds together. Divide dough into two, cover and chill for about 1 hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll half of the dough into a circle large enough to line your pie pan.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the cherries, cornstarch, 250g sugar and the pinch of salt. Spoon this mixture into the dough lined pie pan and set aside.
  • On the same lightly floured surface, roll out the remaining half of dough and cut it into 1 cm or half an inch wide strips. Top the cherry mixture in the pie pan with the dough strips, weaving them in and out to make a lattice crust. Brush crust all over with the milk and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes or until brown. Set aside to cool completely before serving.
  • Heavenly with some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
