Picture of Deep Fried Ice Cream Pie
I just love deep fried ice cream, but I really don't want to take the time to make it.  When I worked at my college cafeteria, one of the cooks, Candy, showed me how she made easy (non deep fried) deep fried ice cream and I've taken that idea and adapted it to make a (non deep fried) deep fried ice cream pie!

I know it's not really deep fried, but it seemed like the best title for how it tastes.  It's so delicious, you won't care that it's not deep fried!

I like unconventional pies and I thought it was about time to make another.  Especially, since my Cookie Brownie Pie is my most popular Instructable.  Pretty good for something I made an a whim!

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
Here is what you need for this tasty pie!

  • Flour Tortillas (I cut up the small to make the mini pies, and use a whole large one for the pie)
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Corn Flakes
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Butter
  • Honey (So important, but I forgot to put it in the picture!)

Special Supplies:
  • Cupcake Pan
  • Pie Pan
  • Pastry Brush (if you have it, if not, I found a spatula worked fine)
  • Ramekin (or something of similar size for cutting out mini pies)
  • Cutting Board and Knife
  • Plates
  • Oven and Microwave

oooh! I miss fried ice cream. I would love to try this, but I just started a no-sugar diet in the hopes to take off at least some of my baby weight. :( I will definitely tuck this away for a treat, though (hopefully soon). ;)

I hope you get to try them some day! They are delicious but so unhealthy and addicting :)

Oh, I hope you do! They are so tasty. What I think is really nice is I made up a bunch of the mini crusts and then just put them in a container (without any filling) and they stayed crispy for weeks! It was pretty nice to just be able to pull out a crust or two when I wanted and put in a little scoop of ice cream and top with cinnamon sugar corn flakes with honey :)
Probably a lot less fattening without the real deep frying experience. :) Looks delicious.
I would think so :) And it is still just as tasty!
