Sweet Cherry Mickey Pie

We have been loving fresh fruit pies this summer. Summer sweet fruit coated in sticky gel, piled high in a crisp crust, topped with whipped cream! I took a chance and grabbed some foil to create a Mickey shape on a pizza pan. I then tucked a layer of foil over top. Supplies grabbed. Flour,…
