"My aunt and I are diabetic," remarks Bonnie Johnson of DeKalb, Illinois. "We both enjoy this yummy, fruity pie...and our friends even request this dessert when they come to visit."


  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) pitted tart cherries
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cook-and-serve vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free cherry gelatin
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 4 teaspoons sugar

Remove from the heat; stir in gelatin powder and sweetener until dissolved. Stir in cherries; transfer to pie crust. Cool completely. Store in the refrigerator.
