Cherry Pie

"Cherry Pie is an overlooked dessert. You rarely see it on a restaurant menu, and that is a travesty. You only hear people talking about their favorite pecan pie or apple pie (which are great), but cherry pie should not be kicked to the curb. So I stepped up my baking game and included a Cherry Pie recipe.

"When the Fall holiday season starts and your sweet tooth is screaming for something different, there is nothing more tasty than a slice of Cherry Pie on a wintry day. If you don’t have a fireplace, just turn the stove on and stand next to it."
—Rushion McDonald
