    Some of you may know that every Sunday I bake something to take into work the next day. Seeing as my torte pans just arrived in the mail yesterday, I was really excited to make the Cherry Cordial Torte!

    I loved how easy it was -- especially that the brownies were so easy to remove from the torte pan!

    What I love best though is how beautiful it looks! I definitely think it is the prettiest thing I have made!

    Looks good even though I don't like cherries! Now you have to try the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Torte!

    I would like to make that one, but I wonder how good it will be the next day? I thought it was only good if it was warm and kinda melty. Someone made it for our cluster meeting and it was really dry, but I think she made it wrong.

    It's almost better the next day in my opinion! The chocolate and such sets up and it's crunchy.

    I may have to try that next, then. Though then my coworkers might complain b/c I just took in the PB Cup trifle!

    I want more torte pan recipes..I thought the holiday desserts cookbook had more, but they're all for the springform pan it seems.

    Do a search in the file section, there are plenty in there. Also in last fall/winter SB, there is a chocolate mint torte that is really good too.

    I didn't like that one either.

    Look in CC - ss/07 - there was a tropical one that was pretty good.

    I made this cherry one for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit. I'm doing it for a show on Thursday.

    There is an Island Breeze Rum Cake from last season (or last year). It was in the S/S Season's Best cookbook. It is sooooo good! The cake itself is devine!

    It's in the Festive Holiday Desserts Cookbook. I don't have it typed up, unfortunately.

    Here you go...

    Cherry Cordial Torte

    The filling is this mouth-watering cake is reminiscent of chocolate-covered cherry cordial candies.

    Torte Layers
    Nonstick cooking spray with flour
    1 pkg (18-21 oz or 450 g) traditional or chewy brownie mix
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup vegetable oil
    1/4 cup water

    Filling and Garnish
    2 cans (21 oz or 540 ml each) cherry pie filling, divided
    1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed (3 cups/750 mL)
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    2 bars (1.45 oz/41 g each) dark chocolate candy, coarsely chopped
    1 tsp almond extract
    1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
    additional powdered sugar for garnish (optional)

    Prep time: 35 minutes Total time: 50 - 60 minutes

    1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray Torte Pans with nonstick cooking spray with flour. Place 8 inch circles of Parchment Paper over centers of pans; set aside. For torte layers, in Stainless (4 qt) Mixing Bowl, combine brownie mix, eggs, oil and water; mix well. Divide batter between pans, spreading to edges. Bake 10-12 minutes or until centers feel firm to the touch. Remove pans from oven to Stackable Cooking Rack; cool in pans 5 minutes. Invert brownies onto cooling rack and cool completely.

    2. Meanwhile, for filling, strain one can of the cherry filling in Small Colander to remove and discard glaze; place cherries into Classic Batter Bowl. Fold in whipped topping, sugar, chocolate and almond extract.

    3. To assemble torte, transfer one brownie well-side up to Simple Additions Large Round Platter. Spread filling into brownie well. Place top brownie layer well-side up over filling. Using Slotted Spoon, spoon second can of cherry pie filling into well of brownie, straining out about 1/4 cup of the glaze. Spread pie filling over well, leaving a 1 inch border around edge of well. Sprinkle toasted almonds into border. Sprinkle additional powdered sugar over almonds, if desired. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Yield: 16 servings

    Chef's Corner

    For the filling in this recipe, the Small Colander and Small Colander Bowl are used to easily strain off excess glaze from the cherry pie filling.

    For best results, do not use brownie mixes containing chocolate morsels or chunks, as these will cause sticking.

    If you don't have nonstick cooking spray containing flour, brush Torte Pans with melted butter, then sprinkle with unsweetened cocoa powder. Tap out excess cocoa powder.

    To toast almonds, place in Small Micro-Cooker. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute, 30 seconds to 2 minutes, 30 seconds, stirring after each 30 second interval, until lightly toasted.

    Glad it turned out. I was planning to make it for a Christmas party in a couple weeks. I wish I didn't have to wait that long to eat some, though.

    Do you guys have any tips for placing the 2nd torte layer on top of the first one? When I have tried it worked one time, the other times it has broken in the middle. I think there must be an easy way I just haven't figured it out yet.

    thanks.
