Strawberries are some of the world’s favourite fruits and is amazing with ice cream. Did you know that you can add some ice cream into a flaky pie crust for something new? Our strawberry ice cream pie will become the new event favourite when you bring it along to dinner parties and or a braai. You can turn it into one large or a couple of small individual pies for everybody.

Strawberry ice cream pie tips

You can either use puff pastry or short sheets from the shop as they are usually perfect. Use a muffin tin for small pies and a large dish if you want a big pie. There is of course no baking needed for the pie, but you will have to par-bake the pie crust. Make sure you weigh the pie crust down with something like rice while baking. Decorate with fresh strawberries and some icing sugar. However, add some meringue on top and give it a quick bake for a great upgrade.
