I left out the cinnamon, lemon juice, and butter, cut the sugar to 1/3 cup and used 2 cups canned cherries and 2 cups fresh blueberries. With these modifications, the pie was excellent, just sweet enough, and with a great balance of cherry and blueberry flavour. (Although I prefer the taste of fresh cherries, they can be a bit runny when baked, and also two cups of fresh cherries might have been overpowered by the blueberries, as other reviewers mentioned.) My husband said that this was the best pie he'd ever had in his life, and coming from him, that's really something.
