Pie has never been so easy! Using Delallo Sour Cherry Spread for a sweet and tart filling, a quick pie dough is transformed into a slab pie perfect for any entertaining occasion. By using a sheet pan, your pie cooks evenly and faster than a traditional pie tin, AND you’ll be able to serve so many more people.
A perfect pie isn’t out of reach, even if it’s your first time. The pie dough you see in this photo comes together in one bowl with only six ingredients and two hands. Making pie dough from scratch is always better since you can control the chunks of butter for a super flaky pastry to hold your filling. And since we’re using jarred spread, this slab pie requires very little active time in the kitchen!
- 4 cups AP flour
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, cubed
- 3/ 4 cup ice water
- 1/ 4 cup vodka
- 3 (10-ounce) jars DeLallo Sour Cherry Spread
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
Make the dough: In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Using your fingers, work butter into flour mixture until pea-sized pieces form. Add water and vodka and continue to knead until a dough forms. Divide dough into 2 disks and cover each with plastic. Let rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Assemble the pie: Preheat the oven to 375°F with a baking steel or pizza stone on the middle rack. On a lightly floured surface, roll out 1 disk of the pie dough into a 15-by-20-inch rectangle. Drape over a half sheet pan, pressing to fit and leaving any overhang on the sides. Spoon DeLallo Sour Cherry Spread over dough, spreading in an even layer.
Roll out other disk of dough into a 14-inch square. Using a knife or a pastry cutter, cut 1-inch strips of dough. Place strips diagonally across filling. Trim off extra dough, then fold under edge to make a rim. Using your fingers, crimp edges of the pie.
Brush dough liberally with beaten egg, then sprinkle turbinado sugar over top. Bake until crust is golden brown, 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before slicing and serving.
