An oat crumble crust gives this pie just the right amount of earthy flavor to bring out the sweetness of the dark, ripe cherries. With a red wine filling, this pie has a tantalizing aroma.

A love letter to cherry pie

Sweet, sweet cherry pie,

Oh so succulent, oh so sublime, if only I had met you earlier, life would be different. Like the first time I tasted a fresh cherry, hand picked, freshly bought from a market, ripe as a mid-summer sun rise, I have fallen for you too! Juicy and bursting with flavor, small and cute, but also dark and mysterious.

I remember pitting each cherry, one by one, pit by pit, fingers red, mouth sweet. I remember baking you, the caramel aroma infusing the hot kitchen air. I remember the sound the wine made as it poured through sugar and into a bunch of cherries. So familiar, so sublime, full of delight!

Now only but a memory, you sweet cherry pie, were the tastiest pie I have ever had. Your crust, full of oats, and brown sugar, baked to perfection, hearty and sweet. The perfect pair to a cherry packed, wine drunk, tangy-sweet filling. Oozing with the richest, darkest, most vibrant juices, oh cherry pie, I ate you over a kitchen counter surrounded by old friends and new, after a day of sun and sand. Until we meet again.
