The lemon was a nice touch, but the canned tart cherries still tasted like a can of cherries to me. I was hoping that the add'l ingredients would really give it something special. It just didn't go over that well with my family.
I didn't actually make this, but will...I just wanted to add a little tidbit. There was a recipe in the 1961 First Edition of Betty Crocker that was for a Red Cherry-Banana Pie that I fixed every year for hubby's birthday (at his request) that was so similar to this recipe, but with an addition of 1/2 tsp cinnamon. It could add a little something extra to this one. The pie was made in a pre-baked crust with a layer of bananas on the bottom, the cherry sauce spread over them, and served with whipped topping.
Perfect. I will never have to buy a can of cherry pie filling again!! no modification needed, but could use Splenda as well.
