Making it better for you
Use “No-Sugar Added” or “Low-Sugar” canned cherry pie filling to lessen the dietary repercussions of our recipe. Remember, though, that making a homemade pie filling is the best way to really control the calorie count in any fruit-based pie recipe. In any case, you need to cut back on the sugar requisite for such recipes. Add several sprinkles of ground cinnamon or ground nutmeg instead. These “warm” spices will help bring out more of the cherries’ natural flavors. Lastly, we suggest making a whole top crust of crushed walnuts instead of plain pie dough to increase the wholesome nutrition in every slice.
