This pie is handy to keep in the freezer for unexpected company.

I'm afraid this didn;t work at all well for us. First, when I set out the ice cream to soften, it melted very quickly rather than slowly softening. Because of that, I had to use 2 crusts instead of one, and the cherries and nuts ended up mostly in one pie rather than evenly distributed. Also, 10 minutes softening time was waaay too long--we ended up with chocolate crust chunks in a puddle of melted goo. It wasn't very appealing to look at, although it tasted okay. I might give it another try, watching the ice cream more closely when it's softening and skipping the softening before serving. I'm not too sure I liked the cherries in it, though--but I've never liked cherries on my sundaes, either. Sorry it didn't work out this time--maybe I'll have better luck next time!
