Diabetic Cherry Pie
This diabetic cherry pie will have you puckering your lips with just the right amount of tartness and licking your lips with the sweet after taste. This pie is not for those who just love their pies sweet. You may want to try the diabetic strawberry pie!
Again, I think this is a wonderful Valentines day treat! So, bake, pucker, lip smack, and enjoy. ;)
