Black Forest Pie
It's amazing what a can of sweetened condensed milk and melted chocolate can do together—combine the two with almond extract and whipped cream in a baked pastry crust and top with cherry pie filling for an easy, yet memorable dessert that's 'guest-worthy'.
4 ounces baking chocolate
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups whipping or heavy cream, whipped
1 (9-inch) baked pie shell
1 (21-ounce) cherry pie filling for accompaniment
- In a heavy saucepan, over medium-low heat, melt baking chocolate with sweetened condensed milk. Remove from heat and stir in almond extract. Pour into a large bowl and chill thoroughly. Beat until smooth. Fold in cream that has been whipped stiff.
- Pour into a baked pie shell. Chill for 4 hours, or until set.
- Top with cherry pie filling just before serving.
