Cherry Cream Pie

Cecelia Huddleston


My husband loves the combination of the cherries with the vanilla cream.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This is more of a cherry custard pie than a cherry cream pie, but it's quite delicious. We loved the creamy vanilla custard with the cherry topping. Adding almond extract and a little sugar brightens up the cherry topping making it taste fresher. The custard layer is so delicious, you can try it with different toppings too (blueberry would be yummy). This is a fantastic old-fashioned dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
