Baked a cherry pie for the first time in my life last week. I used fresh cherries from our cherry tree and followed this recipe. I have not been a fan of the store bought cherry pies so I was just making the pie for my husband because he likes cherry pies, but after using this recipe with our very own cherries I am now a fan! This recipe was so easy to follow and came out tasting wonderful. My husband was not keen on the recipe when I told him it would contain tapioca, but he raved about the pie so much after he tasted it that I am making a second pie right now as I type this! I will be passing this recipe down in my family. It's a winner! Oh, also, my husband took the pits out of the first batch of cherries by squeezing the cherries. After reading a few hints on this site, I tried using the paper clip method on this batch of cherries and that way was clearly the winner. It saved more of the juices and more of the shape/firmness of the cherry. Thanks for sharing that tip!
