I can't help you with the cherry pie but here's my pumpkin pie recipe:

PUMPKIN PIE
1 C Sugar
1 Tb Cornstarch
tsp Salt, scant
tsp Ground Cinnamon
tsp Ground Ginger
tsp Nutmeg
1 Can Pumpkin (15 Oz)
2 Eggs, beaten
1 Tb Butter, melted
⅛ C Molasses
12 Oz Evaporated Milk
1 Dash Lemon Juice
1 Deep-dish Piecrust

Preheat the oven to 450 F.

Sift the sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg together.

Combine the dry mixture with the pumpkin.

Add in the eggs, butter, molasses, milk and lemon juice and combine.

Pour the mixture into the piecrust.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Reduce the temperature to 350 F and bake for another 50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center of the pie comes out clean.

Cool for 2 hours and serve immediately or refrigerate.

start with a store bought crust. thaw the cherries, sprinkle with a little lemon juice and some tapioca to thicken the pie. you can add a little cinnamon if you like, and a bit of vanilla. mix , pour into pie shell. you can put a top crust on or just a crumble topping made with butter , nuts and flour. panko works well instead of flour. wish i knew how much of each. don't measure myself.

Thanks Babe, I like the idea of the crumbled topping and will go with that. I had a hunch I needed something to thicken it so I think I can get it done now. Happy thanksgiving to you. I was so glad to hear Wallie was able to eat something..With prayer there is always hope.
