First marinate the cherries in the cherry brandy overnight. Drain off the cherries but don't discard the brandy. Use this to create a cocktail, to add to something like our Chocolate Strawberry trifle or to add to a pitcher of Sangria. Of course you can omit the brandy altogether for an alcohol free version of this pie.
Please note that this is a large pie meant to feed 10 or more people. I have a large deep 10 inch pie plate that I use for pies like these. If using shallower 8 or 9 inch pans, you will get 2 pies from this recipe. You may need to soak a few more cherries too. Just line the bottoms of the two pans with a single layer of cherries before starting the pie. This will tell you exactly how many you will need.
