I have a bag of frozen cherries and want to bake a pie with them, adding creme fraiche. I'll probably use a recipe intended for sour cream, as they are easier to find. But they tend to use fresh cherries, so they don't have recommendations on how to add frozen cherries.
What will happen if I add them from frozen? If I add them thawed? Which is likelier to taste better?
If it matters, I am planning this to be an open pie (no upper crust).
