As I detailed in a previous post I got a whackload of cherries and needed something to do with them. Obviously pie came to mind but I didn’t want to make a traditional pie. Luckily I came across this recipe from Bon Appetit.

What got me was the coconut. I love love love coconut! And doesn’t the combination of cherry and coconut sound delicious? Instead of the traditional two crust cherry pie this recipe features a coconut crumb topping. It’s like pie meets cobbler. Bring.It.On.

Since I recently figured out that I could make pie crust I was totally gungho for making me some crust. The crust recipe was pretty simple and came out very flaky and delicious. I enjoyed that it didn’t require any shortening.

The rest of the pie was easy to make and turned out really well. I loved the cherry and coconut combination but wouldn’t have minded an additional flavour in with the cherries. Next time I might add a hint of grated ginger to the mix to give it some bite. Alternately the crumb might be pretty good with some finely chopped candied ginger in there too.

If you have some cherries on hand (or other summer berries) this pie is definitely worth trying.
