This past long weekend, I made my very first ice cream pie. For some reason, I always thought they would be harder to make. I don’t know why I assumed I needed special equipment like an ice cream maker! I had just about everything I needed already in my kitchen. It was super easy to make!
The crust is waffle cones broken into small pieces, Fisher Chef’s Naturals Sliced Almonds, butter and honey to hold it all together. It’s a crunchy texture coupled with the soft sweetness of the ice cream to make a heavenly dessert. I’m doing a review for Fisher Nuts coming up and they sent me some nuts to try. I found this recipe on their site and adapted it to suit our tastes. Really you could put whatever flavours of ice cream you want as well as change up the syrup. I love caramel, but Bridget doesn’t so that’s why we only used chocolate.
We usually buy Dairy Queen ice cream cake for birthdays, but making my own is so much cheaper and tastes just as good!
