Baked Cherry Bourbon Pie
Cherry, bourbon, citrus zest, and sugar are loaded into a homemade, buttery pie crust and baked in maple wood-fired smoke.
1/2 Cup old fashioned oats
1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup sliced almonds
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Cup unsalted butter, chilled
3/4 Cup Sugar
3 Tablespoon cornstarch
6 Cup frozen sweet cherries, thawed and drained
2 Tablespoon bourbon
1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon orange zest
1 Whole store bought or homemade pie dough
When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 350℉ and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.
For the Crumble: In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, almonds and salt. Add the chilled butter and using your hands, combine to resemble crumbles. Let rest in the refrigerator.
For the Filling: In a medium bowl, add sugar and cornstarch then whisk to combine. Add cherries, bourbon, orange juice and zest. Fold together carefully with a spatula.
Using fresh or store bought pie dough, roll the dough big enough to cover a 10 inch pie pan. Crimp the edges.
Pour filling into the pie crust. Top the filling with the crumble and place in the Traeger.
Bake for approximately 60 minutes, or until juices are bubbling and crust and crumble topping is golden brown. Let pie cool. Slice and enjoy!
