I fixed this pie for Thanksgiving, I could not find tart cherries, so I settled for frozen sweet cherries. I wanted to double the recipe but was about 1 cup short, so I added Craisins (dried Cranberries). Following the recipe, I poured the cherry mixture into the pie crust, and started to build my lattice crust. I should have waited until the mixture cooled, as it melted the shortening in the dough, and I had a hard time keeping it from stretching, so I would recommend to others who are doing the lattice crust, to wait until the filling is cool. Other than that, my pie got rave reviews from our guests. I will make this again in the future, it was very good, served with homemade whipped cream... YUM!
