Step 1

For crust:

Join milk and vinegar in small bowl to blend.
Whisk flour and salt in medium bowl to blend; add shortening and rub in with fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Stir in milk mixture; briefly knead in bowl just until dough comes together. Gather dough into ball. Divide into 2 pieces, 1 slightly larger than the other. Flatten each piece into disk. Wrap disks separately in plastic and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare filling:

In a pot cook slow heat the cherries, sugar, orange juice,cinnamon, orange peel, cornstarch and salt, mix and cook for a while until is thickness. Set aside by 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 190 ° C.
Roll out larger dough disk on lightly floured work surface to 13-inch round (crust will be thin). Transfer to 10-inch-diameter glass pie dish.
Roll out second disk on lightly floured work surface.
. Spoon cherry filling into crust. Place dough strips across pie in 1 direction and in opposite direction, forming lattice. Press strip ends and edge of crust together to seal. Crimp edges decoratively. Brush lattice and edges with egg glaze.
Bake pie 20 minutes. Cover crust edges with foil collar to prevent overbrowning. Continue to bake until filling bubbles and crust is golden brown, about 40 minutes not more. Transfer pie to rack and cool at least 1 hour. Serve pie warm or at room temperature.
