Made for KK's Think Pink Tag Forum. Ohhh my goodness this is such a pretty pie, very rich in flavor. Definately NOT for a diabetic or someone watching their weight, but ohhhh so cool for kids and young people. I loved the cherry flavor and creamyness of this pie. Thank you for another great dessert.
