"She's my cherry pie.
Cool drink of water, such a sweet surprise.
Tastes so good, make a grown man cry,
Sweet Cherry Pie."
- "Cherry Pie" by Warrant

The cherry is a small, bright red fruit that grows on a tree. It is often used in desserts such as pies, in drinks, or as a topping on ice cream.

In many families, pies are reserved for special occasions, like Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. In others, pie is purchased or made year-round. Centuries ago, pie was a good way to utilize the fruit harvest. Many types of pies were made - some were sweet, others were savory.

How to Draw a Cherry Pie Step 01

1. Begin by drawing a long curved line. This will become the top of the pie. Draw a series of short, overlapping curved lines at one end of the long line. This begins the decorative crust around the edge of the pie.

2. Continue drawing the crust on the opposite side of the pie. Use a series of overlapping "U" shaped lines. This type of scalloped crust is made by pinching the edges of the dough together.

4. Continue the wavy line of the pie crust, then double it back upon itself to enclose the edge of the crust. It won't connect to the crust on the other side - this is where the pie is cut. Then, draw a long curved line into the top of the pie to outline the side of the missing slice.

9. Draw the remaining cherry stem using a curved line. Then, draw the plate the pie is resting on. Use a long curved line to enclose a circle around the base of the pie. But you can't cut a pie without leaving behind crumbs! Draw them on the plate, using curved lines to enclose the round shapes.
