Vegan Cherry Lattice Pie

I absolutely love fruit pies but the store-bought ones have so many unnecessary ingredients, so I created this vegan version of a cherry lattice pie! Perfect to share with the family for an easy weekend dessert. Enjoy!

Serves 6

Serve alone, warm or cold, or with some dairy-free ice cream, yogurt or cream

  • 4-5 tbsp self-raising flour
  • 40-50g dairy-free butter
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp cold water
  • 1 tin of cherry pie filling

For the pie:
  • In a mixing bowl, rub together the flour and butter until it resembles breadcrumbs
  • Add the bicarbonate of soda and sugar and mix together
  • Add the water as needed, working it into the mixture to create a smooth dough
  • Separate the dough into 2 sections (1 will be your pie base, 1 will make the lattice)
  • Roll out 1 section of dough on a floured surface so that it will fit your pie dish
  • Place the dough into your dish and mould it into the shape of the dish
  • Pour the cherry pie filling into the pie dish
  • Roll out the remaining dough and cut into 10 strips (depending on the size of your pie dish)
  • Place the slices of dough in lattice formation over the top of the pie, moulding the edges so that the pastry sticks together
  • Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown
  • Serve and enjoy!
