Peaches and (Ice) Cream Pie

(Last Updated On: September 23, 2010)

Peaches and (Ice) Cream Pie Fresh fruit and vanilla ice cream were made for each other. As the peach season comes to an end, I wanted to make sure I got a chance to combine peaches with ice cream. And to add a little contrast in texture, the additional of some pie crust pieces. It’s another way to eat peach pie a la mode.

For the ice cream
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste (or 1 tablespoon vanilla extract)

For the pie crust topping
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour

To make the ice cream
Check out my instructions on how to make custard based ice cream. Follow those instructions and use your vanilla bean paste or extract as your flavoring.

To make the pie crust topping
Combine the melted butter and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Then add the flour and mix until it forms a dough. Set your oven to 350 degrees. Take pieces of the dough and roll them into small balls. Place them on a sheet pan lined with parchment or a Slipat. Slightly flatten each ball. Place into the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. Once they are golden brown, take them out of the oven. Once cool break into bite size chunks and store in an airtight container

To make the final dessert
Slice some peaches into bite size peaches. Scoop your vanilla ice cream into a bowl. Add your sliced peaches, and then your pie crust pieces on top of that. Eat and enjoy!

  1. […] Now onto the topping. Take 1 part brown sugar (I used 1/2 cup) and combine that with your 1 part melted butter (again I used 1/2 cup). Mix well to combine. Then add 2 parts (I used 1 cup) all-purpose flour. Mix together until a dough forms. Now take little pieces of the dough into your hands and form a ball. Then flatten that ball and place them on your pizza, just as if you were topping a regular pizza. Add as much as you like. I ended up with some leftover dough, which can be cooked up and used like in my Peaches & (Ice) Cream recipe. […]
