A Good-bye Pie for Josh

This pie was made for a dear co-worker that is moving on to greener pastures to Illinois. I made it for him yesterday for his last day at work. Josh goodluck and stay in touch with us.

Baked Cherry Pie

2 cans of the best prepared cherry pie filling
1 whole nutmeg grated or 2 tsp. of nutmeg spice
1 stick of butter, cut up
2 tlbs. of sugar in the raw

Make a double crust pie, along with a few cut out leaves.

Place first crust in a 9 inch pie plate, pour cherry pie filling on top. Sprinkle the filling with the nutmeg and the sugar (add more sugar if you like really sweet cherry pie. Cut up the stick of butter and place slices randomly on top of the filling.

Place second crust over the filling and pinch the edges of both crust all around the pie. Make four slits on top of the crust and makes whatever fancy edges you wish around the crust. Cut out two-three leaves out of the crust and place on top of the crust.

Baste an egg wash (1 egg and 1 tlbs of water beaten) on top of the crust. Coat very well and then sprinkle top crust with raw sugar.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes or until top is nicely golden brown and juices are bubbling out the top slits.
