I love the tartness of the fruit with the flaky pastry. And since you can get frozen cherries and raspberries, you can make it anytime!

Baker’s Notes and Tips and Tricks

I like this pie because it is tart, but some cooks may want to add more sugar. This should go in a deep dish - and even then there may be a bit too much fruit. It's an easy pie if you don't make a lattice top.
