(A multitude of variations possible ... amaretto, chocolate, grand
marnier, etc.) A food processor makes this whole thing VERY easy. You
just toss stuff in and blend. You can make it without one, but it is
more work. A spring form pan will give you a pretty cake. But it
tastes just as good baked in a regular cake pan and served a little on
the mangled side. crust: Toss it all in a food processor and blend.
Crumbs should stick together. If they don't, add a little more melted
butter. Pack into bottom and up the sides of a springform pan
filling: Once again, toss it all in a food processor and blend until
smooth. Pour into the prepared crust. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees
... or until filling is firm and top is golden brown. When cake is
cooled you can add topping. Topping: Like before ... toss it all in a
food processor, and go at it. Pour on cake. Chill for about an hour
so it sets up nice. Put the cake on your serving plate and remove the
springform pan. If you want to be really decadent, pour a can of
prepared cherry pie filling over the whole thing just before serving.
Serve with bedraggled but proud look, and tell all your friends the
effort involved is worth it for the look on their faces. ;-) CAUTION:
Once people try this, they MAY keep asking you to make them one.
