I've never been too fond of cherries till a few years ago, when I watched the TV series Twin Peaks for the first time. There's a diner in the show that serves the best cherry pie. I'd never had cherry pie so I thought I might make one of my own to see how I liked it. I made several different recipes before this one, but they were never tart enough for my liking. So I decided to create my own recipe, with an added ingredient to bring out the tartness. Rhubarb! I had some extra rhubarb from the garden, and it was the perfect addition.
This would be a great treat for any occasion. But you really don't need a special event to make this. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
