Sorbet & Ice Cream Pie with Chocolate Ganache | Good Cheap Eats

Today is Pi Day! 3.14, you know. It’s a perfect day to make a pie!

An ice cream pie is super simple to make and is sure to please pretty much everyone at your table. It’s been a favorite dessert of mine since childhood. In fact, for many years, the Turtle Pie from Baskin-Robbins was my birthday “cake” of choice. I’m gonna need to test an at-home version of that next!

Now, it’s true that I like to stick to that rule about eat all the junk food you want as long as you make it yourself. It’s a built-in control that you won’t overdo the sweets.

While this pie is easy to make, leaning on commercial ice cream, sorbet, and cookie crumb crust, it takes a little time and effort with the homemade chocolate ganache. That makes it totally fall into the “make it yourself” category of junk foods, and is therefore totally cool to make. Amiright?

Justifications aside, this really is a delicious dessert, and you could absolutely make the cookie crust, ice cream, and sorbet yourself. But a few little shortcuts never hurt anyone, did they?

This basic ice cream pie is so versatile, you could make it every week without repeating yourself. Just mix up the flavor combinations, change out the crust, swap in different sorbets, sherbets, or ice cream. The world of ice cream pie is before you!

Just be sure to crown it with the luscious chocolate ganache!

    What a cool idea to layer the sorbet and ice cream. You could have endless variations.

    • Yes, I think you could vary it quite a bit, add different flavors to the ganache, etc. Total mix and match dessert.
