This pie was absolutely delicious! I could not find fresh pitted cherries so I used canned pitted cherries and it was still fantastic! I was afraid it would be fairly runny as it is a juicy pie but it actually had just about the perfect amount of juiciness to it. I did not use a frozen rolled pastry dough but used the Betty Crocker mix to make the dough and it came out just fine.
