Wow! This was incredible! There are no words, really, to describe how fabulous it was. And despite all the steps, it was really quite easy to put together. First, I love a pie that really fills the crust, and you definitely get a big, tall, fluffy slice from this pie. The white chocolate mousse is amazing! I’m already thinking about ways to use it in other recipes. It would definitely work as a stand-alone dessert too, but it’s a perfect accompaniment to the cherry filling.
The almond extract is a brilliant addition–don’t leave it out or use a substitution! If you’re planning to serve this pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas, the almond extract is what really gives it that extra holiday flavor. It’s definitely going to make an appearance on my holiday table this year and is destined to become a holiday tradition at our house.
