I really hate to give such a low rating, but my husband nor I cared for these very much. I was really expecting more cherry flavor and it just wasn't there. I would like to make them again, using more cherries and more cherry juice. They came out of the oven beautiful though, nice and full with a beautiful color. Easy to prepare , not time consuming at all , just not as intense of a flavor as I would have liked.
