Cherry Pie help! Updated

I have to make a cherry pie today and I couldn't find sour cherries.  I ended up buying dark sweet cherries.  Should I adjust the sugar in the recipe?  I don't want it to be too sweet...but I also don't want to mess with the gooey deliciousness inside the pie.

Any thoughts??  I'm usually pretty good about making last minute substitutions, but this is for a friend of my hubbys and I don't want to mess it up for them. 

THANKS!!

Update-

I actually found a recipe for sweet cherry pie!  The main difference is less sugar, add cornstarch and a tablespoon of lemon juice.  I tasted the filling and it was delicious!  I wish it was going to be our Thanksgiving pie. :)

Thanks you all for replying. :)

Sorry, I have no idea.  I usually just use the cherry pie filling for my pies.

I'd adjust the sugar. But I don't have much of a sweet tooth.

I would make a test pie and adjust the sugar or add a little lemon juice to recipe to balance the sweet.

That was my original plan, but I didn't have time to do it this weekend.  Thanks though. :)

I'm glad that you found what you needed.

I'm sure they will love it. And even more so because it was baked fresh and specifically for them with lots of love. < yes it makes a difference.

I am so happy for you! I need a nut-free pie for tomorrow at the in-laws', and this may just work out.

Were the cherries expensive????

They were like $3 or $4 per bag and I used 2 bags.  I used frozen cherries.  Do you want the recipe?
