Snitz and Cherry Pie

Snitz are simply dried apples.  You can get them at most farmers markets.  This pie recipe rehydrates them, as well as dried cherries, and makes an excellent filling.

  1 Box Pie Crust                                                                     2 1/2 Cups Water
  2 Cups Snitz                                                                          1/2 Cup Sugar
  1 Cup Dried Cherries                                                             1/8 Tsp Salt
  1 Small Cinnamon Stick                                                          1 Tbl Corn Starch
  1 Tbl Lime Juice                                                                    2 Tsp Butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Put Snitz, cherries, lime juice, cinnamon stick and water in a saucepan and bring to a low simmer.  Simmer until fruit is hydrated and tender - about 15 minutes.  While simmering, put bottom crust in a 9 inch deep dish pie plate.  When the fruit is hydrated, remove cinnamon stick and stir in sugar and corn starch.  Cook a few more minutes until mixture starts to thicken.  Pour into crust, dot with butter and top with second crust.  You can either cut holes in the crust or you can put a lattice top on the pie.  Bake for 40 to 45 minutes.
