A Month of Chocolate: Primarily Pie

Steve and I have a favorite B&B that we visit in Fredericksburg (well we’ve been twice, and would love to go back!). One place we never fail to visit is the Peach Tree Tea Room. Even guys love this place and if you’ve ever tried their ice-cream pie you know there is nothing “girly” about this incredible dessert! Owner Cynthia Collins Pedregon has this recipe and more in her wonderful Peach Tree Tea Room Cookbook. Enjoy.

Ice Cream Pie
7 T. melted butter
1/4 c. brown sugar
2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate
1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips
3 c. corn flakes
1/3 c. finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 1/2 qts. ice cream (coffee or vanilla work great, but feel free to experiment)
In a medium saucepan melt butter, sugar, chocolate, and chocolate chips together. In a large bowl combine corn flakes and nuts and pour chocolate over. Stir until coated. Spray a 9” pie plate with vegetable coating. Press coated flakes into pie plate and place in freezer until firm. Fill frozen pie shell with slightly softened ice cream. Freeze until firm and top with fudge sauce, praline sauce, berries, or sliced fruit.
