“This recipe is great with vanilla ice cream or yogurt. It's my first year trying the crust and haven't looked for another pie crust recipe since. If desired, mix 1/4 cup of wheat germ into the pie crust dough.”

I made several changes to this recipe to make it a 5 star recipe. For that reason I give it 4 stars. The changes I made were: I pre-baked the crust for 8 minutes, I cooked the filling on the stove top and added 1 tsp. almond extract, 2 TBS water and 2 TBS flour to thicken. 2 cups of filling was clearly not going to be enough, so I tossed in 1 cup of blueberries just before pouring into the pie shell. I also made extra crust and crumbled it over top of the pie before baking for about 12 minutes. I would suggest greasing the pie plate or using cooking oil spray, as the pie was difficult to remove from the plate.

I loved this recipe! My husband and I try to eat healthy foods all the time, and this is our new favorite. I doubled the crust recipe to make a top crust as well. I also heated the cherries with 3/4 cup of Splenda (sugar substitute) and 4 Tbl. of organic flour to a boil in a pot to thicken up a bit before cooking. We made an apple pie in addition to the cherry, which worked just as well. The cooking time was a bit more than 12 minutes, but worth it. 5 stars....

Delicious! I used instant steel cut oats, and let them soak in 4 tbls. water while I pitted the cherries. Added 2 tbls. flour to the sugar that I put in the cherries. I did add 1/4 c. wheat germ to the crust, added another tsp vanilla, and held out about 1/2 c. to sprinkle on the top. Pre baked the crust while the oven was preheating, and baked it for 13 mins at 425, then lowered the temp to 300 and baked another 10 mins. It's like a cherry crisp.
