From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...Mary has a wonderful recipe for a sour cherry tart that has a streusel topping. I was going to make the pie as a surprise for her on President's Day, but when I read the recipe I decided it was more advanced than I am. Not one to give up, I let my fingers do the walking and found this much simpler recipe on the Pillsbury website. This pie is nearly effortless to make and it is good for something so simple to make. You will like it. Here is the recipe.
