Thank you for this recipe! They are very good, I did not have any nuts in the house so I subbed crushed honey roasted sesame sticks! Still tastes GREAT! I'm curious about adding a thin cream cheese layer??? Very "pretty" & tasty!

I would definitely add some almond flavoring to the pie filling, as it lacked "zip" in the taste department.

I have made these many times and always include them on my Christmas trays that I deliver to the bank, post office, doctor's office, etc. -- they always ask for the recipe!

I love this recipe! I've used it 4 times within the past 2 months. I do add a little cinnamon and almond extract to the cherries. Also, about a teaspoon of salt to the crust mixture. This makes the flavors stand out.
