"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 don't think I'm going to save this one...I think I'd rather have the calories & fat, etc. It wasn't terrible, but there are better ways to eat cherries!!!
