Ingredients

Pie Crust

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 sticks butter, cut into small pieces and chilled
  • 1 tablespoon Primo Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Primo Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2-4 tablespoons cherry liquor or cherry juice, very cold

 

Filling

  • 1 pound pie cherries, pitted and washed
  • 2 tablespoons Primo Black Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Primo Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar
  • Juice from half a fresh lemon
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch

Cherry Balsamic Glaze

  • ½ cup Primo Cherry Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2-3 tablespoons granulated sugar

 

Preparation

Pie Crust 

Place the flour and salt into a food processor and pulse to combine.  Add chilled butter and pulse 5-8 times to create pea size pieces.  Add the Primo Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and Primo Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar and pulse to combine.  With the machine pulsing, add enough liquor or juice to the dough to have it just come together.  The dough should stick together when pressed between your fingers.  Divide in half, place into plastic wrap and press out into two flattened disks.  Refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight.  Roll out one disk to ¼ inch and press into bottom of pie tin.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


Filling 

Combine cherries, Primo Cherry Balsamic Vinegar, Primo Sicilian Lemon Balsamic Vinegar and lemon juice in large bowl and stir. Set aside.  In separate bowl, combine sugar and corn starch and whisk to combine.  Pour sugar mixture over the cherry mixture and stir to combine.  Pour the cherries into the prepared pie dough and dot with butter pieces and place back into refrigerator.

Glaze  

Place the Primo Cherry Balsamic Vinegar and sugar into a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Bring to a simmer and reduce heat.  Simmer until the sugar is totally dissolved and the mixture is reduced by half.  Let cool completely.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out the second dough disk and place over top of the cherries.  Secure the top by trimming, folding and pinching.  Refrigerate for another 30 minutes prior to baking.  Bake the pie until the crust is browned and slightly raised and the juice is bubbling out and thickened.  Let cool completely before cutting.
To serve, cut pie into desired sizes, top with a scoop of ice cream or cheddar cheese and drizzle with the glaze.
