Directions

  1. Leave ice cream at room temperature about 15 min., or until soft enough to easily press with back of spoon. Working quickly, scoop ice cream into pie shell, pressing and spreading to edges and slightly mounding in the middle. (Don’t worry if the shell crumbles a bit, it will hold together once frozen.) Cover and freeze until solid, minimum 1 hr., or overnight.

  2. Just before serving, pour off excess liquid from thawed berries. Cut whole strawberries into smaller sections, if desired. Stir icing sugar into berries.

  3. Cut ice cream pie into wedges and plate. Top with berry mixture. Garnish with mint sprigs, if desired.

Tip

If using fresh berries, double quantity of icing sugar and let berries sit at room temperature about 10 min. to develop flavours.
