Who doesn't love ice cream pie? I remember when my step-son was little, he always picked a ice cream cake/pie from Baskin and Robbins for his birthday treat. (Is B&R even still around?) It's also a favorite of the other men in my life....hubs, my dad, and my nephew. I'm really surprised no one has picked this recipe up until now, so a big thanks to Jessica of Domestic Deep Thought.
This was a hit here. I'll even admit to trying a small piece and I have to say that the crust was my favorite part. I've read where a lot of the other bakers had problems with the crust becoming impenetrable after it was frozen, but I didn't have that problem for some reason. And I loved the almond/coffee combination (even though I was a tad heavy handed with the almond extract which ended up overpowering the coffee....totally my fault). I read where Jessica said it reminded her of dipping an almond biscotti into a hot cup of coffee. Exactly!! I topped mine with crushed chocolate covered espresso beans. Really yummy.
I can see using this crust for a ton of different flavors of homemade ice cream this summer. Check out Jessica's blog for the recipe.
