  • 1 (21-oz) can Cherry Pie Filling
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • demerara sugar, for dusting tops of pastry (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Divide dough in half.
  2. Top each dough round with 1 tablespoons pie filling onto center of each round.Fold the dough over in half. Press edges firmly together and seal with a fork. Cut 3 small slits in the tops of each pie to release steam while cooking.
  3. Brush each pie with egg wash and dust with demerara sugar for a bakery-style finish.
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Serve warm or cool.
  5. To reheat, place in a preheated oven and heat until crisp and warm.
