No one would ever dream that the fancy taste and look of this luscious freezer pie from Kimberly West of Prairieville, Louisiana could come from only five simple ingredients! This makes an unbelievably easy dessert—whether for an elegant dinner party or as a cool, high-energy kids’ treat on a sweltering day.
“In New Mexico, we love to make these yummy fried pies for dessert. Because they call for flour tortillas and convenient canned pie filling, they’re a snap to put together when time is short.” —Terry Dominguez, Silver City, New Mexico
I had an overabundant supply of cherries one year, so I adapted several recipes to use them up. I knew this one was a keeper when I received phone calls from my Mother and Grandmother complimenting me on this pie.
“You may want to make two of these easy ice cream pies-one to serve and the other to store in the freezer for company. The combination of chocolate and cherries is irresistible.” —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina
This ruby-red treat is just sweet enough, with a hint of almond flavor and a good level of cinnamon. The cherries peeking out of the lattice crust makes it so pretty, too.—Josie Bochek, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
