Mrs. Parker's Cherry Pie



Mrs. Parker was our housekeeper, and she made the best cherry pie in the entire world.  I ate it at every opportunity.  Papa always said that I was going to turn into a cherry pie myself one day if I wasn't careful.

This was Mrs. Parker's cherry pie: all tangy cherries rolled up in a golden, buttery crust.  It was as sweet as clean sheets on a washing day, as warm as the chair by the kitchen stove on a cold afternoon.  Just imagine it sitting on the plate waiting for you, all piping hot from the oven.
