Test Description
Brandied Cherry Raisin Pie

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Mix together the cherries, raisins, orange juice and brandy. Let sit while making the crust so that flavors will blend.
  2. Crust: In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and 2 tbsp sugar. Cut in butter. Sprinkle with cold water. Gather half of mixture into a ball, then roll out on a floured cloth into a 12″ circle. Place circle of pastry into a 9-inch pie tin. Roll out remaining dough and cut out with a small cookie cutter.
  3. Filling: Stir together 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, tapioca, 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and lemon zest. Pour sugar mixture over fruit and stir gently with a rubber spatula until mixture is well distributed. Stir in walnuts. Transfer to prepared pie pan. Dip leaf-shaped crust cutouts into milk, and shake lightly to remove excess liquid. Place over cherry filling in a random pattern. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden and juices are bubbling and clear. Cool before serving.
