How to Make the Perfect Halloween Cherry Pie

In a bowl mix flour and salt. Add cold butter. Mix. Add water. Cover the dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 

Divide the dough into two parts. Roll out the first part of the cooled dough into a baking dish. Put the dough in a greased form, prick the bottom with a fork, cut off the excess dough at the edges with a knife. Put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes more.

I recommend preparing the filling for a sweet pie in advance so that it cools down well. Send a few chopped plums to the cherries, add 100 g of sugar and leave for a couple of hours (or overnight in the refrigerator). It will give the juice that will be used for filling the cake.

Pour the cherries and juice into a small saucepan, then add the remaining 100 g of sugar, corn starch, and mix. Put the pan on medium heat and, stirring constantly, bring it to a boil. Boil it for 2-3 minutes. You will notice how the syrup will thicken, the consistency will resemble jelly. Cool the cherries in a thick syrup.
