We are back from pie-iatus and have some super great new pies to share! This Ice Cream Sundae Pie Recipe has a few different elements that give it two thumbs up from the pie girls and also the chief pie taster.
First up was the step I started with: make your own salted caramel sauce.
This step involved making caramel by melting sugar and letting it brown and then adding cream (be sure to use a deep pot because it splatters when you add the cream) toss in some salt for a yummy home-made caramel. This would also be really yummy on plain ice cream.
The next step was something i really loved. A DIY chocolate cookie crumb crust that you make from scratch. Our grocery store doesn't always carry chocolate wafer cookies and this crust was a super from-scratch option.
The third element was mixing chocolate bars to the softened ice cream of your choice. We used Bryers Natural Vanilla and it was yum!
Top with whipped cream, drizzle with salted caramel sauce and toss in the freezer to set everything.
The end result was really yummy and it was also good the next day so if you need a
make ahead dessert try this one!
