Hi Everyone!  It’s almost 4th of July! How exciting. Before I start, I want to share short stories during our cherry picking.  A couple of days ago, I took my kids to cherry picking in one of the farms here in Northen, California, and we are lucky enough to catch the last week of the season. Those cherries are super ripe and sweet. So, I figured out its time to make the most famous cherry pie! And cherry pie is such a great idea to serve in this celebration on the fourth of July. The colors are so appealing that you can’t resist having some piece of slice.

But first, Since we are using fresh cherries we have to wash and remove all the seeds and starts how you like the taste of your  filling if you wanted to be sweeter, add more sugar if you desired. If you wanted to more sour, add a little squeeze of lemon. Just make sure you balance the flavors.

And for the crust, it is  very straightforward you only need four ingredients. I added a ingredients list and method how to do steps by steps.
