I made this pie for my father's birthday and it was a big hit. It was smooth and creamy and the crust was wonderful!

sooo good....I'll never go back to box cake again. Note: I accidentally used a can of dark cherries in heavy syrup instead of cherry pie filling and it still came out really good.

This pie was so good! I made it for my bible study and they ate every last crumb. gluten free vanilla oreos with the icing scraped off and ground into crumbs made a celiac-friendly crust. I will be making this again.
