This recipe is pretty tasty, but . . . 2 things that will ensure your success: 1. Make sure you really crimp the dough super tightly. Next time I may even fold the edges over and then crimp (I had caramelized READ: BURNED, lemon filling oozing out of the sides) and 2. There is no way they take 40 minutes to bake. 20 minutes and they will be done. I can't even imagine the burned mess they would be after 40. Ugh.

Took some time to make but was worth it! I made the left over cooked cherry juice into syrup for the ice cream on the sode
