Ingredients:

  • 2 cups canned tart cherries, drained
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 2/3 cup white sugar, divided
  • cooking spray (such as PamĀ®)
  • 1 cup milk

Directions:

  1. Mix cherries, brandy, and 1/3 cup white sugar in a bowl; let soak for 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray.
