Christmas Pies

My apple and cherry pies. I definitely had no idea what I am doing. They look like they exploded. Let's hope they taste better than they look!

For the apple pie, I didn't have enough apple pie filling, so I just cut up another fresh apple and added it. The cherry pie also seemed to be short on filling but another whole can would have overflowed.
