My husband who doesn't like cherry pie made this & gave it a 5 star. He said it was easy to do & didn't have the "taste" he doesn't like from cherry pie. By the way he also made the pie crust from scratch. (what a keeper he is) Read More

I doubled the recipe and filled 30 tart shells. Very pretty for Christmas and really really tasty! A really good faux cherry pie but not quite. I'll still make these again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
