List of Ingredients
1 cup whipping cream
12 ounces bittersweet (not unsweetened) or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
Crust and filling
30 chocolate wafer cookies (about 7 ounces), broken into pieces
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3/4 pound fresh Bing cherries, pitted, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1 quart purchased vanilla ice cream, slightly softened
1/2 cup (about 3 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
|For sauce: Bring whipping cream to simmer in heavy medium saucepan; remove from heat. Add|
chopped chocolate; whisk until smooth.
For crust and filling: Preheat oven to 350Â°F. Grind cookies in processor until coarse crumbs form.
Add butter and blend until crumbs cling together and are evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture over
bottom and up sides of 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Bake crust until slightly puffed and darker,
about 10 minutes. Cool crust on rack.
Combine cherries, sugar and brandy, if desired, in heavy
medium saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to boil. Reduce heat; simmer until thick syrup
forms, stirring often, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Mix in almond extract. Cool to room temperature.
Place ice cream in large bowl. Fold in cherry mixture and chocolate chips. Pack ice cream mixture into prepared crust. Cover
pie and freeze.
(Sauce and pie can be prepared 3 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate sauce. Keep pie frozen.)
Re-warm sauce over low heat. Cut pie into wedges; serve with sauce.
