Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Cherry Pies.

I’m looking forward to a long weekend off work just to chill out and get caught up on a few bits and pieces.  Although today is sunny (but super cold) I hear it is supposed to be pretty awful weather over the weekend so it could be a few more indoor activities.

A lot of supermarkets now carry gluten (and dairy) free pastry sheets which are really handy it you don’t have the time or patience to be making pastry!  I’ve filled these lovely little pies with a sweet red cherry filling and dusted with a little icing sugar.  I also made a tiny little mini version for my niece Eva which was very happily received.
