How to Make Cherry pie

  • In a mixing bowl dissolve yeast in water and let it stand for five minutes.
  • Add sour cream, egg, sugar, butter, salt and two cups of flour and beat until smooth.
  • Add enough extra flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn on to a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic (About six or eight minutes).
  • Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease all sides of the dough.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until it doubles in size (About one hour).
  • Punch dough down. Keep one cup of the dough aside. Divide remaining dough in half.
  • Roll each portion into a nine-inch circle and place in greased nine-inch-round baking pans.
  • Combine filling ingredients and spread over dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pan.
  • Roll out reserved dough to 1/4 inch thickness and cut it in to 1/2 inch strips.
  • Make a lattice top over the filling.
  • Cover and let rise until doubled (About 45 minutes).
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Cover top with foil and bake for 20 minutes or until browned.
