I wanted a warm dessert and since I had a can of cherry pie filling and apples, I decided to make this recipe. Boy am I glad I did! The aroma as it was baking was wonderful and the taste is out of this world! I know I'll make this one again very soon!
This was good, but a little too sweet for our tastes. I think we'd prefer it with tart cherries and might try it that way next time. It seemed like it needed something to offset all the sugar.
Very tasty! I had to sub peaches for apples but the result was really good! I only wish it was more firm or held together better. But my husband reminded me that "It all goes to the same place." Whatever.
