Sour Cherry Pie with Star and flower cut-out pattern

This is basically the pie that my grandmother would make.  I decided to put a pennsylvania dutch hex symbol on top and it worked out pretty well!

Cherry Pie Recipe

2 pie crusts (I use store bought crusts and roll them super thin)

2 cans sour cherries (for 1 small pie)
1/4 cup corn starch
1 cup sugar

Drain the juice off the cherries (reserve the juice!! )

Add cornstarch to a little bit of the juice to dissolve it. Add Sugar and cornstarch mixture to the juice and cook on medium high until it thickens. Add cherries after the juice starts to thicken.

Pour cherries and juice into pie crust and top with 2nd pie crust.

bake at 375 for an hour
