A homemade cherry pie filling! You can use fresh or frozen tart cherries.

Ingredients
  • 4 cups pitted tart red cherries
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
Directions
  1. 1. Place cherries into a saucepan over medium heat, and cover the pan; heat cherries until they release their juice and come to a simmer, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir often.
  2. 2. In a bowl, whisk the sugar with cornstarch until smooth; pour the mixture into the hot cherries and juice, and thoroughly combine. Return to low heat, bring to a simmer, and cook until the filling has thickened, about 2 minutes; remove from heat, let cool, and use as pie filling.
