Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count), softened as directed on box

Streusel

  • 3/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter, cubed

Filling

  • 2 lb frozen sweet and tart cherries (about 6 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F.
  • 2
    Unroll pie crusts; place one on top of the other on work surface. Fold sides in to make straight edges; roll crust into 14 x 12-inch rectangle. Fit dough into quarter sheet pan (rimmed 13x9-inch); trim and crimp edges. Refrigerate.
  • 3
    In food processor, place Streusel ingredients. Cover and process until mixture is sandy and clumps up when pinched. Set aside. In large bowl, mix Filling ingredients.
  • 4
    Spread filling evenly over refrigerated pie crust. Sprinkle generously with streusel; bake about 1 hour or until juices are bubbling. Cool on cooling rack at least 30 minutes before serving.

  • For cornstarch to act as a thickener, it has to reach the boiling point. The key for pie filling to set is to make sure the filling is bubbling before you take it out of the oven.
  • I used a mixture of dark sweet cherries and tart cherries in this pie for a contrast of sweet and tart; you can use all of one kind of cherry or the other -- both taste great!
  • You can make the streusel topping even if you don’t have a food processor. You can work the topping into a sandy texture using a pastry blender or clean hands.
