Let's get started!

Dough (Make twice)
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt and then add cubed butter and shortening. Work between fingers until the mixture no longer has large chunks of butter.
  2. Drizzle in ice cold buttermilk and vanilla. Work in the buttermilk to form a dough.
  3. Shape the dough into a disc and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
Filling
  1. In a small bowl, whisk flour and 6 tablespoons of cherry liquid until smooth.
  2. In a saucepan, stir together cherries, 2 tablespoons of cherry liquid, sugar, and salt. Continue to stir on medium heat until sugar dissolves, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Stir slurry into cherries and increase heat to medium high. Cook until mixture starts to thicken, another 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool at room temperature.
  5. Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Time to decorate!

  1. Roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick and place into a greased baking pan.
  2. Dock the dough with a fork then spread cherry filling evenly along the bottom of the sheet. Save some filling for the hand pie.
  3. Roll out second dough and cut out long strips using a pastry cutter or a paring knife (PICTURE at 6:04).
  4. Arrange strips of dough in a lattice pattern. Crimp the overhanging dough into a rope border (PICTURE at 6:15).
  5. Cut 2 circles out of the excess dough and then cut a hearthstone swirl into the center of one of the circles.
  6. Roll out the dough that remains and cut out a hearthstone sun (PICTURE at 7:37).
  7. Assemble a hand pie with cherry filling and the smaller hearthstone rounds (PICTURE at 8:09). Place hand pie on center of sun design.
  8. Egg wash and bake at lattice pie for 60 to 70 minutes. Egg wash and bake hearthstone hand pie for 15 to 20 minutes.
