Although most people adore apple pie
, if offered a choice of apple pie or cherry pie, the latter would most definitely come out on top. Apple pie is common but cherry pie on the other hand, is a special treat.
As cherries are only obtainable at certain times of the year, it's not every day that you are able to sample such a culinary delight.
The majority of recipes call for Morello cherries, which are not always easy to find, however for cherry lovers, any good quality fresh sweet cherries should suffice. Tinned cherries will also do, yet it is probably better to wait until the perfect freshly picked cherries are available at the market.
