Spring is near and soon the beautiful Japanese cherry trees will be blooming in our nation's capitol. Thinking about that event brought to mind cherry pie. I created this recipe, inspired by the thought of those beautiful pink blossoms. It's very sweet and, at the same time tart. It travels well and is great for potlucks and family gatherings. It's so delicious!
