Cherry and Almond Pie Recipe

This is a recipe which gives a slight twist on a traditional cherry pie. The almond butter filling often takes away the slight “tart” taste that cherries can sometimes produce

1lb cherries
1 egg
Depending on size of egg (use weight of egg) use same for:

Self raising flour
Ground Almonds
Caster Sugar

Ingredients for Filling:
1 lb seedless raisins (2¾ cups)
One/Two tablespoon brandy
Milk to moisten
1 lb cleaned currants (2¾ cups
2 oz chopped, blanched almonds (Third of a cup)
Generous pinch of black pepper
2 oz chopped mixed peel (¼ cup)
6 oz plain flour (1½ cups)
3 oz soft brown sugar (Third of a cup)
One level teaspoon ground allspice
Half level teaspoon each of ground ginger, ground cinnamon, baking powder
One large, beaten egg

Pre heat oven to 350F. Wash,de-stalk and de-stone the cherries if required. Grease a shallow pie pin and place the cherries in it. Mix the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg and then fold in the flour and almonds. Spread the mixture evenly and smoothly over the cherries. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes until the mixture is golden brown (it should also rise noticeably). Serve with custard or cream.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
