Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
We know itís just a myth that George Washington confessed to chopping down a cherry tree.
But the story inspired our delicious No-Lie Cherry Pie recipe!
This pie has a wonderful tart-sweet taste which comes from avoiding pre-made supermarket pie filling (often gelatinous) and using canned sour red cherries, preferably canned in water.
(Of course, if itís cherry-picking season, you could use fresh tart cherries.)
