Cook the Book: Simple Cherry Pie

After yesterday's resoundingly successful blueberry pie, I am feeling pretty good. This good feeling might have something to do with the giant slice of pie I had along with my morning coffee, but for now I'll just attribute it to the feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment that comes from baking something delicious.

Mrs. Rowe's Little Book of Southern Pies by Mollie Cox Bryan includes every fruit pie recipe that you can think of as well as some that you might not have heard of--um, grape pie? My plan for today is to visit the Greenmarket and stock up on pie-worthy summer fruit for the week. Not confident of my pie-baking abilities, last week I took two beautiful pints of sour cherries and used them to make sour cherry and black pepper infused vodka. Hopefully there are still some sour cherries to be had this week to use in this recipe for simple cherry pie. Hopefully number two will turn out as well as the first one, wish me luck!
