Print this Recipe    Cherry Clafouti with Chocolate Cookie Crust

1 1/2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (about 5 oz)
1 large egg, beaten
5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon favorite liquor (optional)

1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup ricotta cheese (non-fat works ok)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups cherries, washed, pitted & sliced

To make the crust, combine chocolate cookie crumbs, egg, melted
butter and optional liquor (if used) in a bowl. Toss gently until
all is moistened. Press evenly into a 9-inch pie pan. Place in
freezer for 30 minutes. (we do this to keep the crust together
before cooking). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove crust
from freezer and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven and raise
temperature to 400 degrees.

Combine milk, ricotta, eggs, sugar, flour and vanilla in a blender.
Pulse until just mixed and then blend for 2 minutes. Line the
bottom of the crust with the prepared fruit and pour the blender
contents over the fruit. Place pie pan on a cookie sheet and return
to the oven. bake for 30-35 minutes until top is lightly browned
and puffy, turning once halfway through the baking. Remove from
oven the allow to cool for 5 minutes prior to slicing. Serve warm
with fruit sauce or softly whipped cream, of just by itself. It
also tastes great served cold.
