Reviews for Cherry Pie Chimis
"We have been making a similar recipe for years using wontons and mixing the cherry pie filling with cream cheese before spooning the filling in.... YUMMY!"
"The first time I made these I followed the recipe. The next time I made them I added a little almond extract to the cherry pie filling before I filled the tortillas. Then after frying them I drizzle them with powdered sugar glaze OR canned cream cheese frosting AND toasted sliced almondsI Wow, what a difference! 5 stars!!!"
