Easy Iced Coffee and Cream Pie?
You really have to make this! A pie that tastes like an iced cappuccino and is a cool, yummy summertime treat - one Iced Coffee and Cream Pie just won't be enough! Do you like chocolate, vanilla, coffee,and toffee? Then you will love this wickedly delicious ice cream pie with a crunchy oreo style crust that will disappear in minutes. It really did!
Yesterday was our annual Golf Tournament at the Double M, and we were all asked to take a dish to contribute to the buffet. Of course I was making another Pies of Summer creation - this time a confection of frosty chocolate, coffee and toffee flavours... Iced Coffee and Cream. Yum Yum! I started to cut it on the buffet table, and honestly people were lining up to get a piece! So here it is - just for you, so easy to put together, I made it while my husband was barbecuing dinner!
26 chocolate cream filled sandwich cookies
1 quart (1 litre) chocolate ice cream
½ cup (250 ml) coffee liqueur
2 cups (1 litre) whipped cream – sweetened with sugar** (see below for tip!)
3 tbs. butter
1 quart (1 litre) vanilla ice cream
1 cup (500 ml) crushed Heath Bars (Skor in Canada)I used 6 bars in total
Mixed crush cookies use your food processor with melted butter and press into 9” pie plate
Chill while preparing the filling
Stir chocolate ice cream to soften and blend in ¼ c of the coffee liqueur
Spoon into pie shell
Sprinkle with crushed Heath bars and put in the freezer for 30 minutes
(NB: the chocolate ice cream layer must be solid before the vanilla layer is added)
Soften vanilla ice cream and ¼ c of coffee liqueur
Spoon over the chocolate mixture
Garnish by piping whipped cream around the pie - I went around the pie twice
Sprinkle another crushed Heath bar in the centre
Cut into wedges and drizzle some coffee liqueur over the top
A coffee lover’s dream!! What a wonderful dessert to serve when friends pop in and so easy.
**I substituted piping the fresh whipped cream for the real whipped cream that comes in a can. Just personal preference, whipping cream really doesn’t take much time – and you need to have a piping sleeve to do the job. Using the real whipped cream in the can took literally seconds!
What a beautiful presentation….
