Awesome recipe concept! If you have a tough time finding canned TART cherries (or worse yet, fresh, which only seem to be in season on or about June 17 each year, for about an hour and 13 minutes - what? You missed it?!) this is perfect! Cherry pie is my husband's favorite, and so I'm stocking the freezer with cranberries while they're in season. For a more authentic cherry pie taste, I skipped the vanilla and used 1/2 tsp almond extract, plus 1 Tb fresh lemon juice. This gives it a great tart kick, which is what DH loves about cherry pie. I also used 2/3 Splenda and 1/3 white sugar in place of all sugar, which is now standard practice for me when making any pie. No one is any the wiser, but it allows the diabetics in the bunch to partake without guilt, plus everyone is happier to have skipped the carbs. Thank you for posting this recipe, which will no doubt be requested on every major holiday in this house, until I reach the end of my pie-baking days.
