I tried something different and made a Sauerkirschen Lattice Pie, and I can assure you it was all worth the effort.
- 2½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- 2 sticks (1 cup) butter cut into cubes
- 5 tablespoons (or more) ice water
- 1 cup of sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 3 to 4 cups whole pitted sour cherries
- 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons butter (to dot)
Whisk flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl to blend.
Add butter and rub in with fingertips.
Add water (if the dough is dry add a little more water, I added 2 tablespoons more).
Gather dough together.
Divide into 2 pieces, form 2 balls and wrap in plastic.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Roll the first ball out on a floured surface and transfer to a 9-inch glass pie dish.
Roll the second ball out, cut it into strips and keep it aside.
Combine all the ingredients except for the butter.
Put aside while rolling out the dough.
Transfer the filling to the dough-lined dish.
Dot with butter.
Arrange dough strips atop filling, forming lattice.
Fold the bottom crust up over ends of strips.
Brush lattice with milk.
Bake 15 minutes at 425°F(200°C), reduce oven temperature to 375°F (180°C) and bake another 45 minutes.
Serve with ice cream.

Are tart cherries and sour cherries the same thing?
Tart cherries (scientific name Prunus cerasus) are also called sour cherries. They are best known as a key ingredient in desserts; most importantly, the cherry pie. However, tart cherries are also delicious in preserves, main courses, salads, side dishes, and beverages.
How do you preserve fresh sour cherries?
Place in the freezer for a couple of hours until solid, then put the frozen cherries into a container and keep frozen until needed. Freezing them in a single layer first, means they don’t freeze into a solid mass in the container making it easier later to get only the amount needed for a recipe.
