Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie

Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie
Normally my hubby Sam an I watch TV together, well he watches TV, I'm usually sitting next to him with the laptop. This night I was looking at cookbooks, he happened to look at the page I was reading with this recipe and the cookbook picture on it and let out a gasp! Can you make that!!! I want that, when can you make it!!! I have to admit, it was a pie that just jumped out at you.   To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.


Cherry pie filling , cream cheese filling, ganache...*sigh*. Yes sweetheart, I'll make it just for you, not because I want the chance to get my hands on a piece ...kay sweetie (hee hee). This is made with a chocolate cookie crust that I bought already made. Have you ever tried to get that first piece of pie out of the pie pan to take a picture and mangle it in the process? With a prepackaged cookie pie crust you can cut the foil pan where you plan on taking the first slice out ( cut on both sides of the slice and bend the foil down) and the piece comes out like a dream. Plan on making this pie a day ahead, it has to sit in the fridge for 8 hours, but it's totally worth it!!!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie
The Best of Southern Living Cookbook 2008
Page 380

Ingredients
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 (6-ounce) ready-made chocolate crumb pie crust
1 (21-ounce) can cherry pie filling
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
16 maraschino cherries with stems
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed

Preparation

Microwave morsels and cream in a glass bowl bowl at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 to 2 minutes or until chocolate begins to melt. Whisk in butter until smooth. Let cool, whisking occasionally, 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture reaches spreading consistency. Spoon half of chocolate mixture into pie crust. Cover and chill remaining chocolate mixture.

Spoon cherry pie filling evenly over chocolate mixture in pie crust. Place pie crust on a baking sheet and set aside
Beat cream cheese and next 3 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture over cherry pie filling. (Pie shell will be very full but will not overflow when baking.)
Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven, and cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill 8 hours.

Drain stemmed cherries on paper towels; pat dry.
Microwave reserved chocolate mixture at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute. Remove from microwave; stir until spreading consistency, reheating if necessary.
Dip stemmed cherries in chocolate mixture, and place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper; chill 15 minutes. Spread remaining chocolate mixture evenly over top of pie. Spoon 8 dollops of whipped topping around outer edge of pie; place 2 chocolate covered cherries in center of each dollop.

I just had flashbacks of those chocolate covered cherry cordials you can only ever seem to find around Christmas time. Every year I get them and then I realize only !*&#*(& they taste as horrible as I remember them.

Oh wait should clarify yours looks amazing and no doubt in my mind it tastes like a wonderful cheesecake meets cherries with chocolate dish.

I love the flavour of chocolate and cherry together.

Mary at My New 30 said...

Gotta love those So. Living cookbooks! LOVE LOVE chocolate covered cherries - this pie must be fantastic! Looks amazing!

On pie cutting, it also sometimes helps if you go ahead and cut two slices, instead of just one, before you try to lift out the first one. For some reason that makes the first slice come out easier, most of the time.

Justin Schwartz said...

Andrew's Mom said...

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Whoa! That's amazing. It's like a black forest cake and a cherry cheesecake all in one package.

You do have a way with the cherries, lady!

Lori said...

I have to admit I am not a big cherry and chocolate fan but this could persuade me. It looks beautiful and it is a perfect cut Bunny. The first piece is always my piece because it is invariably mangled!

MrOrph said...

I just stabbed the monitor with my fork!!!!

Karen Brown Letarte said...

Yowza!!! That is quite the pie! Thank goodness DC isn't here, or I'd definitely be running out to get the ingredients right now. He loves cherry anything.

Thanks for the comments on my shrimp pasta! If you make it, LMK how you and Sam like it! :) K

Claudia said...

Chocolate and cherries? How good is this? I love it when your loved one says, "Can you make this?" I take it as challenge. Beautiful photos.

CookiePie said...

Fabulous-looking pie!!! Choc + cherries = YUMMY!!!

lyndsay said...

i really shouldn't read blogs when i haven't eaten breakfast. my mouth really did just start to water. but i really should be having oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, not your amazing looking chocolate covered cherry pie!!!

Sophie said...

Bunny, Bunny, Bunny,...what a beaty of a dessert! What a real treat!!! It looks decadently delicious!! Great food!!!

Jacque said...

Mmmm, that looks super tasty!

And good tip on getting the pie out of the pan... I would think this pie would be hard to get out nicely, what with the firmer top on the softer bottom.

burpandslurp said...

This pie is worth every penny and sweat to make! AWESOME!

Claudia said...

Thanks flor visitng me. Don't you lofe hen our husband says, "Can you make this?" Duhh. "Can you help?"

apparentlyjessy said...

This just looks SO delicious! I don't really like cherries, but I doubt that would come between me and the pie if I were to somehow have a slice!

RecipeGirl said...
