Life is a cherry pie . A combination of bing cherries and sour cherries makes this bright scarlet pie a country fair contest winner. If you don't have sour cherries, substitute 1/3 cup dried sour cherries and reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup. If pitting cherries is not your thing, substitute pitted frozen ones (sometimes I use frozen sour cherrise with fresh sweet cherries). This is old time diner fabulous pie.
