I gave this 1 star because my husband liked it.
He is the cherry lover not me. I keep thinking I did something wrong because when the pie cooled it looked like cherry SOUP! I had to drain off all the water before cutting into it and there was still more water! I enjoyed the crust and that was about it. I am curious to see if anyone else makes it and has the same problem I had!
Good luck because I won't make it again.
Someone is joking with this recipe adding a cup of water! The juice from the canned cherries is all you need BUT you do need flour or corn starch to thicken the liquid otherwise you'll have a soupie mess. Good Luck!
I thought to give this a try because it looked easy. I didn't add a full cup of water sinse the other reviewer had trouble with it. I found that like them, It was still a lot of liquid. I ended up having to poor a lot of it off. Next time I think less then 1/2 a cup water will be fine. I might give it a try again but I'm not crazy about cherries to begin with I just had some cherries I needed to use up. Other people in my house enjoyed it. So, if you are going to try this don't use too much water.
This recipe is obviously missing some ingredients. You don't need the water and you need corn starch to thicken it. If you're using canned cherries, you don't even need the liquid from the can.
We even tried to resurrect it by adding cornstarch and gelatin and decreasing the amount of water... It was a flop.
I did not care for this recipe. Save your time and money.
Too wet. Boring flavor. Needs thickener. The recipe resembles a home-ec assignment.
I added no water and even drained the cherries just a bit. I used an oil crust and it wasn't bad. A simple cherry pie with no pizzazz.
