Wash, stem, and pit cherries. The fastest way to pit the cherries (I pitted 20 lbs. of pie cherries this year and tested several) is to remove the stem, insert a drinking straw into the stem "hole" and push the pit right out. I had a young assistant remove the stems for me, which saved a lot of time.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Press one pie crust into the bottom of a pie plate. Place pie plate on cookie sheet to contain spills.
Mix pie cherries, sugar and flour in a bowl.
Place in pie crust.
Cut second pie crust into strips. Arrange in a lattice pattern across the top of the pie. Brush with a little egg or milk and sprinkle with a little more sugar.
Bake for about 30 minutes or until crust is golden. Let cool and serve.
