CHERRY CHEESE PIE

This pie screams TRADITION. Imagine Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof shimmying and singing “Tradition”. That kind of tradition.

From as long as I can remember my family has made this pie for Thanksgiving. Most times we bypass the plates. Us Larson girls just grab a fork and minutes later…GONE.
 
It’s not gourmet. I don’t even like cherries so I scrape them off. Oh, but it’s so delicious. It takes me right back to my mom’s kitchen.
