- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare Pastry for Double-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, slightly flatten one portion of dough. Roll dough from center to edge into a 12-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate, easing the dough without stretching it. Trim pastry 1/2 inch beyond pie plate. Pour fruit mixture into pastry-lined pie plate.
- For lattice top, roll the remaining dough into a 12-inch circle. Cut pastry into strips 3/4- to 1 1/2-inch wide. Weave strips over fruit mixture in a lattice pattern. Press ends of strips into bottom pastry rim. Fold pastry over ends of strips; crimp edge as desired. Brush pastry with milk; sprinkle with additional granulated sugar.
- Place pie on a baking sheet; cover edges with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 25 to 35 minutes more or until filling is bubbly 2 inches from edge and pastry is golden. Cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with Sweetened Whipped Cream
If using frozen cherries, let mixture in Step 1 stand 45 minutes or until cherries are partially thawed. In Step 4, bake 45 minutes before removing foil.
Adorn your pie with a sweet cherry touch. Stamp out circles for cherries using small biscuit cutters. Make a leaf with a small teardrop pastry cutter, or use a knife to cut the shape freehand.
- In a large bowl stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat with additional ice water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a ball.
