It’s better to be safe than sorry when making pies and cobblers. When using canned cherries, I simply pinch each one to make sure that no pits sneak their way into the dish I’m preparing! —Arlene Bender, Martin, North Dakota
My great-aunt in Pennsylvania's a great country cook, and she gave this recipe to me. It's one of my husband's favorites. I like it, too—it's easier than two-crust pies, plus I've used both fresh and frozen cherries with good results.
The simple combination of raspberries and cherries is the delectable difference in this pie. "My family prefers it with a lattice crust," says Fern Buffington of Traer, Iowa, "but feel free to top it any way you like."
