Tart Cherry Lattice Pie Recipe

Tart Cherry Lattice Pie Recipe

Whenever my mom is invited to a party or potluck, everyone requests her homemade double-crust fruit pies. In the summer, she uses fresh, tart cherries for this recipe. I love a slice topped with vanilla ice cream. — Pamela Eaton, Monclova, Ohio
