I usually make homemade tart cherry pies, but every so often laziness takes over. My husband just hates those pre-made frozen cherry pies, and to be honest, this recipe sounded similar to those. I still made it, and to my amazement, husband commented how good it tasted. That says a lot--this recipe stays in the keeper file under "recipes that fool Jerry." He thinks everything I make is from scratch, so I appreciate good tasting but very easy recipes. Made as is, but next time I may add just a smidge of almond extract, as that is what is called for in most cherry pie recipes. Thanks for making my life easier, marisk!
This was my very first cherry pie, ever. It was very easy! I followed the recipe exactly except that I used 1 1/2 times more crunch topping and used a Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust for the bottom crust because that's all I had. Bf really wanted a cherry pie, and saw something called 'cherry crunch' pie in the freezer section of the grocery store and asked me to make him something like that. I searched 'Zaar and found this. He was very happy. Thank you for a nice recipe! :)
