Cherry pie with cream cheese pastry

Serves 8
Prep time: 30 mins
Cooking time: 45 mins

You do need to spend the time to pit the cherries for a pie - it makes eating it so much more enjoyable.

  • Pies



  • 2 cup Flour
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 175 g butter, chilled and diced
  • 125 g cream cheeses, chilled and diced
  • 3-4 tbsp cream
  • 1 kg cherries
  • 1/4 cup corn flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 220ºC.
  2. Lightly grease a 23*24cm shallow-sided round flan or pie dish.
  3. Place the flour and icing sugar into a food processor bowl fitted with the metal blade.
  4. Add the butter and cream cheese and pulse until the mixture looks like fine crumbs.
  5. Pulse in sufficient cream to make coarse breadcrumbs. Do not process until the mixture forms a ball as you will have overworked the apstry dough and it will be tough, not short, when cooked.
  6. Turn out on to a lightly floured bench and bring together.
  7. Roll out  to a 30cm round shape.
  8. Roll ip and over the rolling pin and then unroll over the prepared dish, allowing the extra pastry to hang evenly over the edges.
  9. Place half the cherries in a large bowl and crush coarsley with a potato masher.
  10. Stir in the corn flour and sugar.
  11. Pile cherries into the centre of the pastry, with whole ones on top.
  12. Bring the overhanging edges of the pastry over the cherries, leaving the centre uncovered.
  13. Place into the preheated oven, lower temperature immediately to 190ºC and bake for 40-45minutes or until pastry is golden and cooked and cherries well softened.
  14. Dust with icing sugar to serve.
