Turn your favorite summer fruit pies into ice cream without the need for an ice cream maker. How about this roasted strawberry-rhubarb pie ice cream?
Today is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie day which means the most obvious thing to do was to bake a pseudo pie only to be thrown into ice cream. Bob’s all-time favorite pie is strawberry-rhubarb so when I say this day noted on my food holiday calendar I knew I couldn’t let it pass by unnoticed. But I also knew that I wasn’t going to make any old strawberry-rhubarb pie. Since the roasted balsamic strawberry ice cream is one of my favorites that I have made, it wasn’t a far stretch to turn it into roasted strawberry-rhubarb pie ice cream.
Instead of baking a pie, I roasted the strawberries and rhubarb pieces in the oven with a little bit of honey. While they cooled I baked the pie crust by itself until it got nice and crisp and golden, just like the best pie crusts are meant to be. After the oven finished doing it’s job I took a shortcut and used the no-churn method of making ice cream by whipping up heavy cream and adding sweetened condensed milk. Fold in the roasted fruit and pie crust pieces and it’s ready for the freezer! In the end it’s just like strawberry-rhubarb pie a la mode if you mixed it all up together. Because that’s pretty much what I did.
You could easily modify this recipe for any of your favorite fruit pies. Which would you like to try?
