Ice Cream Pies
Pies are great for so many occasions because they are so varied in flavors and ingredients. Ice cream pies are most popular in warm weather months like spring and summer because they are so cool and refreshing.
Most ice cream pies use a graham cracker crust or other cookie crumb crust. You can make your own from scratch or buy them premade at the grocery store. You can also buy pre-crushed graham cracker crumbs to save yourself some time (and mess).
The type of ice cream used in the pies can vary tremendously and be tailored to suit your tastes. Some popular flavors are cappuccino or coffee, chocolate chip, pistachio, and butter pecan. The ice cream is usually softened a little first so it can be smoothed over the crust. It is then typically refrozen until firm and ready to serve.
Some of the frozen pies consist of layers such as using a brownie mix on the bottom, a layer of ice cream, then a topping such as fudge sauce or fruit.
