Mini Chocolate Cherry Pies


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
one.  


Chocolate Cherry Mini Pie Recipe

2 eggs
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!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
