Great pie! It's a nice change from the usual cherry pie. I liked mine served chilled. Thanks for sharing! I made it using "No Roll Cream Cheese Crust".
Lovely! We had a bumper crop of sour cherries this year, so I used about four cups instead of the canned cherries and the results were very satisfying. I will definitely make this again.
This is a great recipe. I recognize it from Taste of Home. It has very unique ingredients in it, and is very easy to put together. I have made it a couple of times for potlucks, and there is never any left! Thank you for posting here for safe keeping!
