Ice cream pie, the recipe for a perfect summer
If I say pie, you surely think of a beautiful savory one or a classic apple or cherry one but have you ever thought how great is to make a pie with ice cream? It’s even better is it’s easy to make and it can be prepared way in advance, to be eaten at your convenience.
The filling really depends by your taste and also by what you’ve at home: one of the best is definitely the chocolate chip but you can really decide how to fill your ice cream pie based also on your guests.
Clearly making an ice cream pie is easier than making a baked cake but it it does take patience because the temptation to open the freezer will kill you.

75 grams of unsalted and softened butter
