Weeknight Party Girl :: Weeknight Cherry Pie

1 sheet puff pastry, defrosted
2 cups pitted and roughly chopped cherries
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons melted butter
sugar for dusting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  On a floured surface, roll puff pastry dough out to approximately 16”x14”. 
In a mixing bowl toss together cherries, sugar, and cornstarch.  Spread cherries out on one side of the puff pastry.  Cut a handful of air vents out on the opposite side of the puff pastry using a cookie cutter.  Pick up the unfilled side of the puff pastry sheet and lay it over top the cherries enveloping them completely.  Pinch the edges tightly to close.

Brush the top of the pastry with melted butter, sprinkle with a bit of sugar and bake 20-25 minutes until bubbly and browned.  Remove from oven and let cool slightly.  Serve at room temperature.
