Reviews for Out-of-this-World Pie
"This is a wonderful pie to serve in the summer and also pretty at Christmas also! Women especially like it, and it was the most requested pie we served when our club furnished food for our local auction house concession. I've also made it with sugar-free Jell-O, Splenda, and no sugar added cherry filling, and it's just as good. Since it makes two pies, it's a great dessert to make for several people. And--it's easy!"
