Pro Tip: You can also make your own pie filling using frozen or fresh cherries, which allows you to control the sweetness:
To make your own cherry filling, you'll need:
4 cups pitted cherries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Quick directions for cherry filling: Heat the cherries in a saucepan until the juices begin to release. If you are using frozen cherries, simply thawing them will do the trick. Add the sugar, cornstarch and lemon juice and combine well. Stir constantly over low heat until the filling is thickened.
