ikl


Ingredients :
For the Chocolate Pie Crust

  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder (I used Dutch processed)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut in cubes and frozen
  • 1 egg yolk, chilled
  • 1/4 cup ice cold water (+/- 1 tablespoon as needed)
  • Chocolate Ganache (optional)
  • 4 oz dark chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Cherry Filling
  • 2 lbs pitted cherries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup kirsch
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Pie Topping
  • 3/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kirsch
  • shaved chocolate
  • fresh cherries


Instructions :
In a food processor, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt together. Pulse until combined.
Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Run the food processor and add the yolk, then slowly add the water. Stop at 1/4 cup and test the mixture. It should look like wet sand, but come together when pressed. Add another tablespoon as needed.
Turn the pie crust dough onto plastic wrap and form into a disc. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
Melt the chocolate for the ganache, if using. Stir in the heavy cream until it is well combined. Set aside until needed.
