Ground Cherry Apple Pie Recipe


This pie is so simple to make and it got rave reviews, everyone says that the ground cherries tasted like little hit of peach in this apple pie..

I am comfortable saying that is pretty to serve, easy to make (really easy) and that the flavour combo worked very well. Want to know more about Ground Cherries?

Ground Cherry Apple Pie Recipe

  • 6 cups of peeled, sliced cored apples
  • 2 cups of ground cherries (husk’s removed)
  • 2 tbsp. of flour
  • 1/4th cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. of chopped finely diced candied dried ginger
  • 1 tbsp. of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. of ginger
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg or all spice.

Ok, you will need enough pie dough to make either a top and bottom or a like in this one, a bottom shell with an open lattice top.

In a bowl mix everything listed above, then pour into your bottom shell. Add you top of choice, if solid. don’t forget to cut a couple of air holes into the top of the pie crust 🙂

Bake at 350 for 50 min.

(normally my pies are ready at 45 min but this one took the extra five min) Can be served warm or cold..  It got tried both ways but while apple pie get the voice for warm.. this pie got the vote for cold better..  Tried it both ways and tell me what you think?
