Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, microwave uncovered on Medium-Low (30%) 15 to 20 seconds.
  • To make beautiful chocolate curls, microwave a white or semisweet chocolate bar uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds or until slightly warm. Using long strokes, pull a vegetable peeler across edge of bar to form curls.
  • Swap cherry pie filling topping with a drizzle of caramel or chocolate ice cream topping, chocolate curls, fresh berries or your favorite berry pie filling, if desired.
  • Pillsbury™ Pet•Ritz® frozen pie crust makes this recipe, well, easy as pie. Just bake, fill and eat—it's really that simple!
  • This pie is great for potlucks or any type of travel. Leave off the topping, and wrap the finished pie well in plastic wrap and foil. Bring it to your destination, then either top the entire pie with your favorite topping or bring options and let guests choose their own to spoon on however they like! Bonus: The pie plate itself is disposable, too, so you don't have to track down a dish from your host or leave behind any (unlikely) leftover pie.

More About This Recipe

  • The term "black-bottom" refers to any pie with a layer of chocolate between the pie crust and the filling. There are many variations, but we love our simplified version that uses semisweet chocolate chips.
