NICE flavor! DH and I are dark cherry lovers and have them all the time in ice cream. This was a great change for a different dessert! I only put in one-half of the milk since we wanted it creamy. Otherwise I followed the recipe. This recipe only made ONE PIE though! Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #29 Event June 2009.
