Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 cups chocolate wafer crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine wafer crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a lightly greased 11-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom.
  • Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350° until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.

  • Pour into crust; spread evenly. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Spread pie filling over the top.
  • In a microwave, melt chocolate and cream; stir until smooth. Cool for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drizzle over tart. Chill until set.
