Brandy-Soaked Cheater Cherry Pie


  • 2 lbs cherries
  • 1/3 cup brandy
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 juice of lime
  • 3.8 oz mini fillo shells
  • In a large bowl, combine the cherries and brandy. Let soak for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • On your Instant Pot®, select Sauté Low. When the display reads “Hot,” pour the cherries and whatever liquid is at the bottom of the bowl into the inner pot. Stir in the sugar, cornstarch, salt, and lime juice. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently so nothing burns, until thickened.
  • Let cool for a few minutes before spooning the filling into the fillo shells.
