Frozen Whipped Cream


  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 pints dulce de leche ice cream
  • Vanilla-Caramel Sauce
  • Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce
  • Spanish salted peanuts with skin, toasted, for serving

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs with the butter, cinnamon and nutmeg. Press the crumbs into a 9-inch glass or ceramic pie plate to form an even crust. Bake the crust in the center of the oven for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool.

  2. Let the ice cream thaw in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Scoop the ice cream in a large bowl and, using an electric mixer, beat it just until very soft but not melted. Spread the softened ice cream into the pie shell and freeze for at least 1 1/2 hours, or until the ice cream is firm.

  3. Cut the pie into wedges and serve with the dessert sauces and peanuts.
