This was a good recipe to satisfy a cherry pie craving. It has a good balance between the super tart cherries and sweet "goo". Next time I will reduce the amount of cornstarch used. It was rather rubbery before folding in the cherries. I like mine juicier. It did make cutting and serving the pie a breeze. The taste was fantastic and well worth playing with the recipe.


Excellent! Will try again with a homemade crust!


Just a little too sweet for me but a huge hit with my husband.
