    How can this only have 5 and now 6 reviews, this was amazing! I had people wanting to know where I found this at. Instead of writing the resipe out so many times it was better to just email it.

    I've been making this since first finding it in the 1997 Taste of Home magazine. It taste fabulous and I always have requests. I love the toasted almonds in it. Just made it for our bible class Christmas party and it was well loved. Thanks for posting as I can't always find my TOH magazines when I need them for a certain recipe. Instead of plain cherries on top, I like to top with cherry cordials. Yum.

    The filling also makes yummy cream puffs - my husband calls them "Cherry Dream Puffs"!- If using for a pie, we use the extra large pre-made graham cracker crust. Enjoy!

    I made this as part my daughters birthday dinner, it really is an impressive looking pie and got lots of comments. A little sweet for my tastes but otherwise enjoyed.


After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
