I used fat free yogurt (Fage greek strained) instead of sour cream, cut the sugar in half, added vanilla and lemon, and used half blueberries and half bing cherries (leftovers from another pie). It's very good, but the fruit tasted a bit artificial, despite everything being local and organic. I may pull the vanilla next time and add lemon zest as well as juice to ramp up the tartness. I also used a bit less fruit, as it was leftover fruit from another pie, and cut the sugar in the sour-cream mixture. It has a wonderful texture, and the yogurt worked perfectly. Will definitely make this again, and will continue to fiddle with it to get that truly farm-fresh flavor. Since I tweaked the heck out of it I can't fairly rate it with 5 stars, and the artificial fruit flavor was a detractor, albeit one my hubby didn't notice!
