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.

Mix together all ingredients in the order listed. Pour into pie shell and top with 1 can of Wilderness Cherry Pie Filling. Refrigerate 3 hours or longer.
