  • Summary

    Birthdays don't have to mean cake. This double-decker pie features two stacked flavors in a stunning presentation that will be just as celebratory when you shout, "Surprise!" This version combines a decadent fudgy bottom layer with a tart cherry-raspberry top layer for a play on German Black Forest cake, but feel free to swap in any 9” deep-dish fruit pie filling recipe to create your own combo.
