When Jack and I eloped eight years ago, I didn’t want to lose all of the extras. I made a bouquet for me and a boutonniere for Jack; we still had champagne and even a small cake. Every year I go back to that bakery and get the same cake for us to enjoy after dinner. This year since I have been making a lot of ice cream pies, I decided to make an ice cream pie version. Yum! I used a graham cracker crust, strawberry cheesecake ice cream, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries. I followed the same steps as the Fourth of July Pie: melted the ice cream, layered the strawberries on the bottom of the crust, poured in ice cream, layered more strawberries before pouring the rest of the ice cream, and froze. Once frozen, I topped the pie off with the whipped cream and strawberries. It was perfect after a long and hot summer day! Next year I think I am going to try to make it with custard….yummmm.
These are posts from the original Oak Tree Junction blog before I took a break in 2020. These posts were created to share my creations with the hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side. I plan to continue to share new creations on the current blog.
