  • 1/4 cup caster sugar

  • 150g butter, chilled, chopped

  • Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C.

  • Grease the round pie dish and spread two-thirds of the pastry between 2 sheets of baking paper until large enough to line base and side of prepared dish.

  • Line dish with pastry. Trim edge. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  • Spoon cooled cherry mixture into pastry.

  • Roll out remaining pastry between 2 sheets baking paper.

  • Using a sharp knife, cut pastry round into 2cm-wide strips.

  • Arrange pastry strips over filling to create a criss-cross lattice pattern and press edges to seal.

  • Sprinkle the pastry with remaining sugar.

  • Place pie dish on heated tray in oven. Bake until pastry is golden and crisp
