I made this recipe as printed, except I substituted two cans of tart red cherries in water (drained) because fresh cherries were not available. The recipe was perfect. The crust was crisp on top and moist in the center. The cherry layer was perfect - not too sweet or too tart with the right proportion and consistency of sauce. It's difficult to find fresh tart, red cherries and sweet cherries would make this recipe very sweet. But if you can locate tart cherries, it's an easy and perfect recipe. (and in a pinch or when you don't have time to pit cherries, the canned cherries worked very well)
