Personal Notes:
This is called Mom's Cherry Pie recipe because she made a cherry pie every year for my birthday. I think this began when I was 9 or 10, I really don't remember. However, I remember getting the pit every single time. I bit down very carefully with each bite knowing I would hit it and sure enough, I did!!
