Well there’s no doubt that Dean Winchester has an obsession with pie! Dean was shown eating a delicious piece of pie in season 5 episode 15, and there have been multiple references about the demonic angel’s not-so-holy obsession with the pastry, his favorite flavor being cherry. So here’s a little something for all you Supernatural fans out there!

Pie Crust:

  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 tablespoons cold water
  1. In a large bowl, cut butter into flour and salt, using pastry blender, until particles are size of coarse crumbs. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1-2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).
  2. Gather pastry into a ball, divide into halves. Shape into two rounds on lightly floured cloth-covered board.
  3. Roll pastry into circle 2 inches larger than upside-down pie plate, 9×1 1/4 inches, with floured rolling pin. Fold pastry into fourths; Place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into pie plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side.
  4. Turn cherry filling into pastry-lined pie plate, 9×1 1/4 inches. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of plate. Roll other round of pastry. Fold into fourths and cut slits so steam can escape.
  5. Place pastry over filling and unfold. Trim overhanging edge of top pastry 1 inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal.

Cherry Pie Filling:

  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 cups red tart cherries, pitted
  • 2 tablespoons stick butter

  2. Mix sugar and flour in large bowl. Stir in cherries.
  3. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter. Cover with top pastry that has slits cut in it; seal.
  4. Cover edge with strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
  5. Bake 35-45 minutes. Cool in Pie plate on wire rack.

Chocolate Design:

  • 1 1/2 cups dark chocolate melts
  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1 1/2 cups of dark chocolate at 50% power or defrost setting for 1 minute.
  2. Stir thoroughly in container. Continue to microwave at 50% power or defrost setting in 30-second intervals and stirring until smooth or completely melted.
  3. Pour melted chocolate into piping bag. Cut a small tip for decorating.
  4. On a small metal baking sheet, place a sheet of wax paper and tape the paper to the baking sheet.
  5. Using the piping bag of melted chocolate, draw a pentagram about an inch smaller than the size of the pie (as shown in photo).

  • Once design is complete, place baking sheet in refrigerator until design has cooled and completely hardened.
  • When the pentagram is ready, gently remove from baking sheet and place on top of pie.

Baking this pie was really nice, and surprisingly easy to put together! I had no trouble making the pie crust or the cherry filling, and the chocolate pentagram was very simple. I had a lot of fun baking this and I hope you will too! Tune in next week for another nerdalicious treat!
