Pie à la Mode Ice Cream Cones

My local grocery store has been unfairly tempting me with great sales on their bakery pies lately. And I never know which flavor to choose because they all sound so tasty, so I usually end up bringing two or three different kinds home. This makes my family happy, because everyone gets to choose the flavor of pie they want, but it generally means that eventually there will be a few half-eaten pies cluttering my kitchen surfaces.

So rather than throwing that perfectly good pie away, I went searching for a way to use it….and this idea from All You magazine was the answer to my leftover pie dilemma! Everyone loves pie à la mode, so mixing pie and ice cream together and putting it in a cone?? Genius! (I also appreciate that this particular dessert doesn’t need to be served on a plate or bowl that I’ll have to wash.) 😉

This is also a great idea to file away for later this week if your Thanksgiving festivities leave you with leftover pie.

There are so many different combinations of pie and ice cream that you can put together based on your tastes. I happened to have Apple pie, Pumpkin pie, and Banana Cream pie on hand, so I went searching through the ice cream aisle at the store to find some perfect ice cream pairings.

Here are the pairings that I came up with:

Apple pie + Dulce de Leche ice cream = “Caramel Apple” Cone

Pumpkin pie + Coffee ice cream = “Pumpkin Spice Latte” Cone

Banana Cream pie + English Toffee ice cream = “Banoffee Pie” Cone

The method for making the pie and ice cream mix is really simple. Start by cutting a piece or two of your pie(s) into 1/2″ pieces, and arranging them on a plate so they’re not touching each other. Place the plate into the freezer for a half hour or so, until the pieces are quite firm.

While you’re waiting, take your ice cream out of the freezer and allow it to soften. You want it to be soft and easily stirred, but not runny.

Once your pie pieces have firmed up, scoop your softened ice cream into a container add the pie pieces a few at a time, mixing them into the ice cream with a spoon. You want to find a good ratio of ice cream to pie pieces, so it helps to add them a few at a time.

Once your pie pieces are mixed into the ice cream, place the container back into the freezer until the ice cream has firmed up again.

Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the ice cream into cones, and enjoy!
