This is an extremely versatile pie recipe that I have already made with blueberries and peaches. When I made the Creamy Blueberry Pie I used thawed frozen blueberries, the Incredible Peaches and Cream Pie was made with fresh peaches. Today I used canned pitted dark sweet cherries and canned sour cherries, I think I’ve covered every possible way you can make this recipe!
The fruit filling isn’t the only aspect of the pie you can change, I used a brown sugar topping for the blueberry pie and a white sugar topping for the peach and cherry pie. Delicious and creamy is the only way to describe your first bite. The creaminess comes from the sour cream in the filling. Yes, sour cream and it does an amazing job of letting the flavor of the fruit come shining through. The combination of sweet and dark cherries was just lovely. The topping gives you a little crunch to go along with the smoothness of the pie. Cherry Cream Pie, you’re going to love it! Enjoy!
