Cherry pie

Try this pie using fresh, sweet cherries when they're in season. Lightly sweeten with sugar and toss the pitted fruit with a little Grand Marnier and vanilla to brighten the flavors and to give the cherries more depth. The resulting pie is simple but rich with flavor, with a slightly firmer texture from the fresh fruit.
