Brandy-Soaked Cheater Cherry Pie
By :The Complete Vegan Instant Pot Cookbook By Barb Musick
Print Recipe
I’m a big fan of cherry pie. I’m actually a fan of most pies but don’t like to bake, so I don’t partake very often. When I do commit to putting in that level of effort, it is almost always for cherry pie. Until, that is, I decided to become a cheater. I realized that the filling is the easy part, and by combining those delicious cherries with fillo shells from the freezer section of my grocery store, most of the work is already done!

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine the cherries and brandy. Let soak for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. On your Instant Pot®, select Sauté Low. When the display reads “Hot,” pour the cherries and whatever liquid is at the bottom of the bowl into the inner pot. Stir in the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and lime juice. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently so nothing burns, until thickened.
  3. Let cool for a few minutes before spooning the filling into the fillo shells.
Recipe Notes

INGREDIENT TIP:
Frozen cherries are fine to use; thaw them completely before soaking.
