Our massive cherry tree is ready to be picked
and although we enjoy the fresh fruit just
as it is, I wanted to create a recipe to
use the sweet cherries in.
Chocolate covered cherries are one of
my favorite treats to make at Christmas
so I decided to make a Chocolate Cherry Pie.
I love any dessert in little individual form.
They make it so much more fun for serving
to guests. Often for a dinner party I make
small desserts and have each couple share
Chocolate Cherry Mini Pie Recipe
3/4 C. flour
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. sugar
3/4 C. butter (no margarine), melted
1 C/ semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 C. chopped, fresh sweet cherries
enough pie crust for 2 - 9 inch pie shells
Pre-heat oven to 325.
Mix the eggs, flour, sugars in a bowl and
stir together. In another bowl place the
chocolate and butter and microwave for
1 minute. Stir until smooth. Add to the
egg mixture and then stir in the chocolate.
If you are making a large pie, this will make
one pie, if you are making individual pies,
this will need the dough for 2 pies and
will make 6 individual pies.
Bake at 325 for 60 minutes for a large
pie or 30 minutes for individual pies.
I dipped some fresh cherries in chocolate for a garnish.
This is a fudgy, rich pie that is moist in
the center with bites of cherry.
It turned out so great!
