Recipe by Lisawas
"This is a sour cherry pie recipe that is SO simple I can put it together and get in the oven in less than 10 minutes. The hardest thing about this pie is tracking down canned sour cherries but if you look carefully, you can find them in most grocery stores. When the pie is served, top with vanilla ice cream to add the element of sweet to the sour!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Simple and delicious! And, just as the submitter states you CAN do this in less than 10 minutes. It's the perfect recipe if you're in a hurry or you need to make a lot of pies. I baked mine in a glass dish with a baking sheet underneath to catch the excess drippings. It baked up nice and tasted great - especially with vanilla ice cream! Thanks for a great recipe Lisawas! And, thanks to everyone at AR for letting my niece Kailey and I participate in the President's Pie Challenge for the Thanksgiving webcast! We had a great time! As my niece put it, one of the best parts was getting to eat the pie at the end!!!
I followed the recipe exactly but didn't think this was a very good pie at all. Almost every store-bought/restaurant cherry pie I've ever had was better. I will never make it again. : (
SO DELICIOUS! I used 6 c frozen tart cherries (no need to defrost-use them frozen) instead of canned. Instead of all sugar, used 3/4 c sugar and 3/4 c Splenda granular (this is the Splenda that is cup for cup equivalent of sugar). No need to add extra water or liquid. Suggestion: If you have time, mix all pie ingredients together in a bowl and leave on the counter for about 10 minutes to let the cherries thaw slightly and absorb tapioca before you bake. I always do this when baking any type of fruit pie and using tapioca, and it seems to produce better/tastier pies. If you don't have time, charge ahead and get baking! My husband called for his mother and rolled his eyes back in his head over this one! :)
Excellent pie!! I only used one cup of sugar and the cherries were picked from my back yard. I will be using this recipe again and was so simple to make. It's a keeper in my books.
Best tasting and most beautiful pie I've ever made (and I've made a lot in my 66 years). I made it exactly like the recipe except that I brushed the top with milk and sprinkled sugar over it.
This "basic" recipe was rated by our entire family (cherry pie snobs) best ever experience with the following changes: We made our own butter-based pie crust; instead of almond extract we used about 1 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice. Instead of canned cherries, we used 5 cups fresh pitted tart (drained) cherries from our tree; we increased the sugar to about 2-1/2 cups, and let the mixture sit over 15 minutes to soften the tapioca.
I used this recipe as a stepping off point for making a "sugar-free" version. I substituted Splenda for the sugar and it came out fine! I also substituted a 12 oz. bag of frozen unsweetened Sweet Dark Cherries for one of the cans of sour cherries.
My husband picked the cherries in the AM, & in 1hr that evening, the pie was made and cooling on the stove.(Not sure how long it took to pit the cherries though! I used about 5- 51/2 cups of fresh cherries instead of the canned ones.) This was my first sour cherry pie, and I made if for my husband for Father's Day. I also used whipped cream for a topping instead of ice cream. This Sour Cherry Pie hit a home run for my hubby and family! I have enough cherries to make another one. Can you say yum?!
