DIRECTIONS
Pie Crust


Place flour, salt & sugar in a food processor and combine. Cut butter into small pieces and process until it resembles a coarse meal (:15 or so). Add ice water slowly in through feed tube while processing just until dough holds together…no more than :30. Divide and wrap in plastic and refrigerate about 1 hour. Roll out ½ the dough for bottom pie crust.


Filling:


Sauté’ butter, pineapple and brown sugar. Add vanilla. Mix cornstarch with juice and add to thicken. Pour into pie crust.


Topping:


Cut cherries in half and arrange on top of filling. Mix flour, brown sugar, salt and butter with pastry blender. Add milk as needed to make a crumbly mixture. Add nuts and top pie with mixture. It should resemble a crumble. Take remaining pie crust and arrange lattice top. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
