Sour Cherry Pie

My grandfather and his daughter-in-law came down for lunch today--to visit, to watch Finn's birthday video, and to meet the new neighbors (our eight chickens!). 

After lettuce topped with chicken salad and pecans, a tray of crackers and cheese, and a big bowl of fruit salad, I served dessert: sour cherry pie.  The original plan was shortbread, but when my father-in-law and brother-in-law brought a few gallons of sour cherries over yesterday, the plan changed. 

Picked yesterday, pitted last night, and baked into a crust today: I think this is the best sour cherry pie I've ever made *or* tasted.


My husband emailed me to ask if the pie is vegan.  "The pie is completely vegan, except for one stick of butter," I replied.  

We'll see how that plays out after dinner tonight.....
