Easy and delicious! Next time I would mix the chocolate chips inside the pie (um maybe add a few more...) and drizzle with a bit of chocolate sauce after slicing. A keeper! Read More

Unfortunately I didn't like it. Maybe it was the lower quality ice-cream I used? Maybe my freezer was to cold? But this didn't turn out very nice! There weren't any pie crusts in the super-market at the time suitable. So my girl friend and I made our own out of crushed up cookies. This was the only nice part of the dish. I used fresh cherries pitted and quarted them. Added in a cheap ice-cream. Froze it. It turned out rock hard. Took 2 minutes just to hack a peice off. Allowing it to sit out for a while didn't help as it made the ice-cream not taste nice and took far to long to soften up. The cherries no longer tasted nice and were also very hard. Would have been nicer had I had the ice-cream with the fresh cherries on top by themselves. Although in all honestly I think this all may have came down to the poor quality ice-cream and possibly the freezer being to cold considering how much everyone else seems to have loved it. Pros: Can't think of any. Cons: Hard. Read More
