They’re great alone or on the side with a bowl of cherry or vanilla ice cream. Now, you could make your own homemade dough, but that would definitely add to the prep time. So don’t tell anyone, but we did use a pre-made pie crust (shhhhhh!). It’s something we don’t do often, but feel like it’s okay in our busy lifestyles! There’s also a stipulation because you kind of have to use Luxardo Maraschino Cherries or something comparable. The thick juice and luxuriousness of these cherries are what make the pies so good. These fried cherry pies have a high-low aspect to them, ha! Get the steps for these delicious pies of cherry goodness below…
