Roll out half of pastry to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Place in a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate; trim off excess pastry along edges. Pour cooled cherry mixture into pastry shell. Roll remaining pastry to 1/8-inch thickness; transfer to top of pie. Trim off excess pastry along edges. Fold edges under and flute. Cut slits in top crust for steam to escape. Brush top of pastry shell lightly with milk. Bake at 400 degrees for 55 minutes or until golden brown. Cool pie before serving. The cherry pie recipe is ready to serve....nice one ! Enjoy it !
NOTE: Two pounds fresh cherries, pitted, may be substituted for
2 (16-ounce) packages frozen cherries; use 1/4 cup cornstarch instead of 3 tablespoons.
