Direction for pie crust:
In a mixing bowl, add the flour and salt, mix well and set a side.
in another bowl add coconut oil, canola or vegetable oil and water mix well.
Using your hands or a pastry blender add a few tablespoons of the oil and water mixture to the flour and salt mixture.
Blend well until it form a dough. Do not over mix or over work the dough. When it form a ball, wrap the dough and refrigerate for 30 minutes to an hour.
When ready to roll ou the dough to make a pie crust, lightly sprinkle some all-purpose flour on your work surface. Using a rolling-pin, gently roll the dough and place the pir pan over the rolled out dough to measure the size of the pie pan. Press the dough down with your hands, using a fork press out the air bubbles if any.
Bake the pie crust in the oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. While the crust is baking, cut out stripes for the top of the pie crust. As seem in the photo.

When the pie crust is done, spoon the cherry mixture into the bake pie crust. Cover the pie with a full pie crust ( in the middle of the dough if covering the whole pie , using a knife cut to holes so the pie steam will be released)or have a pattern as shown in the photo. Brush water and sugar mixture on each strip and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
