  • Finally, something to do with Cherry Pie Filling that's delicious!!! My guy insists on buying it, knowing full well I'd NEVER make a pie out of anything but FRESH FRUIT! OK, so call me a snob, that's just me BUT!!** This is a great tasting recipe! I also made it with Chocolate Chips and another with Raisins!! All came out fantastic, so those are my tips and feedback! Best of LUCK and HAPPINESS IN 2009
