Christmas Cherry Pie

Christmas time is the best time of year! By far, it is my favorite holiday. I grew up with a mom that loved baking everything all year but especially during the holidays so it was always a very special time for me. I grew up in a household with just me and my mom so my assistance in the kitchen was always required! Although we would make 16-20 different types of cookies, 2-3 brownie flavors, a couple of cakes, and 8-10 different pies…. her cherry pie was something I always looked forward to. The handmade crust and the different types of cherries made for the best combination of sweet and sour! To this day, I can still smell the sweet aroma of that cherry pie and I can still feel the love she put into her hand crafted masterpiece!
