Preparation

To Make the Crust:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the vegetable shortening and flour into a mixer and mix until completely blended.
  3. Add the salt and sugar and mix in well.
  4. Next, add the water (the dough will begin to form into a ball).
  5. Split the dough in half and roll out both halves on a flour dusted counter until they are large enough to cover the pie dish.
  6. Transfer the dough into the pie dish and then cut out starts for the top.
To Make the Filling:
  1. Pit the cherries if necessary and then transfer to a saucepan with the water and Chambord.
  2. Heat over medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking for 20 minutes.
  3. After 20 minutes, take the saucepan off the cooktop and add the corn starch, vanilla, and stevia. Mix well and the sauce should thicken.
  4. Let it cool for 10 minutes and then transfer the filling into the pie pan and top with the crust stars.
  5. Brush the crust with some almond milk and then pop it in the oven for 40-45 minutes.
