Strawberry Ice Cream Pie
My kids are always asking me to make dessert. More often than not, I don't usually make dessert unless we are having company over for dinner. And if the truth be known I love simple desserts. Fresh berries are one of my favorite go-to desserts. I usually spend the bulk of my time cooking the main course and when it comes to dessert, I like to keep it simple and easy. This recipe for "Strawberry Ice Cream Pie" is perfect in my opinion. It is so easy to make and doesn't take much time at all. The results are amazing. I did use a prepared graham cracker pie crust to save on time. The grated a dark chocolate bar over the finished pie take it to another level. When serving the pie I used a delicious chocolate sauce and fresh strawberries as garnish to make it look decadent and amazing. The perfectionist in me is coming out . . . but, the final dish turned out beautiful. This recipe will go well with numerous types for ice cream. The possibilities are endless. I hope you enjoy this easy and simple dessert recipe. Please share your comments below. Remember to follow me on Facebook and Pinterest for other recipe ideas. Bon Appetit, Cecelia
