Reviews for Black Forest Pie
"Very quick & easy, this is my holiday tradition which I make every Christmas, my family's favorite."
"This was overall a descent pie. The regular pie crust actually didn't go well with rest, though. I will probably play with the crust and see if I can come up with something that fits together with the rest of the ingredients better. Aside from that, the filling was pretty good, and I absolutely love cherries."
"Very delicious pie and quite easy to prepare. It will definitely be made again."
"It was moist and delicious and not too sweet. And whipped cream should never be optional for this!"
