I call this Throw Together pie because that's exactly what I did! I wanted to make a pie for Memorial Day Weekend and didn't think about it until the last minute. I just searched around my pantry to see what was available and this is what I came up with. Not too bad for something that only took a few minutes to create. Ingredients: -1 c. strawberries, sliced -3/4 c. raspberry jam -1/2 c. dried cherries -4 oz. bittersweet chocolate, melted (I didn't melt the chocolate but I think it would've been better to do so!) -1/2 tsp. lemon juice -2 tsp. cornstarch -1/2 c. sugar -1 9" piecrust, homemade or store bought

Ingredients: -1 1/2 c. cream filled chocolate cookie crumbs (such as Oreos) -1 1/2 tsp. sugar -1/4 c. butter, melted -4 c. coffee ice cream, softened -1/4 c. chocolate syrup, divided -Additional cream-filled cookies *optional whipped cream for topping 1. In a small bowl, combine cookie crumbs and sugar. Stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
