Super Cherry Pie Recipe – Taste Test

Home / Recipes / Desserts / Super Cherry Pie Recipe – Taste Test

I have a confession to make, I’m a little bit in love with cherries. Since today is National Pie Day (yes that’s a thing!) I thought I would share with you my FAVORITE pie recipe. Last time I made this I needed two cans of sweetened condensed milk and I only had ONE, so I decided to make some of my own using Thrive’s Instant Milk and do a taste test. The homemade condensed milk pie turned out amazing! The texture was a little bit thicker and the flavor was just as good! I’ll share the details on that below.

    Would have loved to have pointed this. Unfortunately, the pin button takes me to you consultant page. Too bad. Lost recipe for me and lost pin for you.

    • Hi Darlene, I’m not sure what you are seeing when you try to pin it. When I click the pinnable image it links to this blog post which has the recipe on it, it doesn’t go to a consultant or sales page at all? Sorry if something is working funny on your end. It really is a great recipe though 🙂

        Curiouser and curisior. Lol Gotta love smart phones. Who knows why computers get glitches and then fix themselves. I just know it happens. Just now tried pinning again and it worked. So…you’re now pinned. Along side of your other great ideas and recipes. Thanks. And love the blogs you ladies have.
