Sour cherries are only in season a short time. This is the best way to celebrate their arrival for independence day!
Preheat oven to 325
In a mixing bowl combine cherries, vanilla, sugar, and cornstarch. Mix well. Let stand 5-10 minutes.
Roll out first crust and line pie plate with it.
Pour cherry mixture into pie plate
Roll out top crust. I like to cut strips and make a lattice top.
Dot pie with butter and place top crust on pie
Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar
Place pie in oven on the middle rack and bake 35- 40 minutes, until crust is brown and pie is bubbly
Allow pie to sit at least one hour before cutting to allow sauce to thicken.
