Tips

Expert Tips

If you don’t have brandy, soak the cherries in a mixture of 1/4 cup water and 1 teaspoon brandy extract.

Store custard-type pies like this in the fridge. But if you want to serve it warm, place slices on individual microwavable plates and microwave on High for about 10 seconds.

For a pretty presentation, top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream and a festive chocolate tree (see page 00).
