Mom’s Brandy-Soaked Cherry Pie

Nothing compares to Mom’s Cherry Pie.
Mom’s Brandy-Soaked Cherry Pie
Cherry Pie for me is many things. It is the final course of a large family meal, greeted with smiles of anticipation; a summer barbecue in rural Ohio; a celebration (with ice cream) of another baseball victory. It is also visits home from college, a long and much-needed chat accompanied by pots of coffee, and my dad: smacking his lips and singing a song.Mom’s Brandy-Soaked Cherry Pie
All of these memories began with one thing: my mother. Usually in her bathrobe, just after sunrise, she would roll out hand-made dough and stir up fillings for some family gathering that was happening that day. Her famous pies are second to none, and her Brandy-Soaked Cherry pie is my dad and I’s hands-down favorite. I still love to wake up in my parents’ house to the smell of my mother’s pies baking in the oven. There is nothing quite like it.Mom’s Brandy-Soaked Cherry Pie
Keith was very quickly ushered in to the tradition of my mother’s pies as dessert from the moment he met my family. I think it is my mother’s way of welcome: to bake you something. Although we have been taught countless times the secrets of her pie crusts and fillings, we continue to strive to get them to taste as good as they do when they emerge from her oven. I truly doubt this will ever happen, but we will keep trying.Mom’s Brandy-Soaked Cherry Pie
