    HeatherFeather's Note:

    If you prefer, you may use a prepared pie pastry or subsitute your favorite crust recipe. However, this crust has a unique flavor from the orange zest and the nuts. An unusual pie with a fruity cherry layer topped with a sour cream layer. Adapted from "Best of the Best of Georgia." Pie should be kept in the fridge after baking.
