Can She Bake a Cherry Pie Billy Boy??

That would be a no.

We have 1 1/2 cherry trees. And I say half becuz most of it is gone and it's not standin' up right. We planted 4 but they are not very sturdy trees and have broken in the ice storms and high winds of the thunderstorms. We planted them in our first year here. They were nice little trees....supposedly, Bing Cherry.

That again would a NO.

We have stopped buying fruit trees from Lowes and Home Depot as they are never what they are marked. But anyway...

For the first time in 13 years, we had cherries! Beautiful cherries! Perfect little sour cherries!!!

The whole time I was pickin' them I was thinkin' of how I was gonna get them into some vodka.

Roy told to try a pie....riiiiiight.

We all know I can't bake!

So one day I sat down to clean them. I decided to cook them down and then make the pie when I felt better.

That never happened!

But I have the most de-lish cherry syrup....that was an absolute mess on the stove. And I can't wait to have Cherry Limeade Margaritas!!

Those are the perfect cherries for pies, darlin'. After you pit them DO NOT BOIL THEM!

Add a hand well of dry tapioca, and nice shot of almond extract - or Amaretto, if you prefer - and 1 cup sugar. Mix this together and dump into a pie crust; beit home made of store bought.

Trust me.

YUM. Cherry margaritas!! Have you ever had a Sangria Margarita? They're awesome.

Store-bought crust is better than the real thing, or at least my real thing. I don't do crust worth a damn.

Girl, you are my kind of cook. Forget the pies. . . put it in my booze! Great idea. My brother put fresh strawberries in margaritas--YUM!
