ELLEN'S CHERRY-CHOCOLATE PIE

This recipe came from a craving for my mother's chocolate pie and a separate craving for my sister-in-law's cherry cheesecake, as well as a fondness for those chocolate-covered cherry cordials that they sell at Christmas time.

Similar recipes all called for either chocolate or graham cracker crusts, but I wanted to stick with my mother's original pie crust. I like the combination with the chocolate.

How to Make ELLEN'S CHERRY-CHOCOLATE PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare pudding as directed on package (do not use instant). Cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Pour pudding into pre-baked pie shell. Chill for 3-4 hours.
  3. Spoon cherry pie filling over chilled pie, covering entire top of pie. Garnish with whipped cream as desired. Serve.
  4. Refrigerate any leftover portions.
  5. To prebake pie crust for a filled pie: Prick the bottom of the pie crust with a fork, covering well. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit and place into pie shell. Weigh the paper down with pie weights or about a pound of dry beans. Bake in a preheated 400º oven, directly on rack, for 10-15 minutes until edges are starting to brown. Remove from oven and remove the parchment paper and weights. Let crust cool before filling.
