Can the cherry pie filling be replaced with maraschino cherries in a Crock-Pot cherry pineapple dump cake n is there any thing different with the directions if I use the maraschino cherries?
While it's technically possible, you probably won't like the result. Maraschino cherries are a very different flavor and texture from cherry pie filling. Cherry pie filling is soft, gooey and balances sweetness and tartness. Maraschino cherries are hard, candied cherries, and the liquid is very strong.
