She’s My Christmas Cherry Pie

Because it’s christmas and because my sister, Alisha van Bone, is such an amazing cook, I wanted to inspire you with a christmas baking idea! Alisha made this fresh cherry pie for our friend’s christmas party and it was definitely a hit.

The cherry pie was made from a recipe in the October issue of Delicious magazine and isn’t online yet but I found a similar recipe. She used fresh cherries and cut out pastry shapes to decorate the top, making it look fun and christmasy, enjoy!
