It’s a small thing, but when I was about eight years old, I remember my parents letting me occasionally snag a cherry hand pie from the gas station when we filled up. It was a special treat, for sure, but one that I eventually grew out of because I found the packaged cherry hand pies to be too sweet.
Good news, though! I’m an adult now and I can make my own cherry pies—ones that have a better balance of sweet and tart flavors.
