Last Sunday night we had a wonderful group of friends over for dinner. I did a post about the party here. The dessert was a particular hit! It was Peach Melba Ice Cream Pie. It was perfect for the season, especially on such a hot evening. It's such a good fix-ahead dish. The pie can be fixed weeks earlier and frozen, and the raspberry coulis can be made several days in advance. Every single person here asked for the recipe.
This is the only piece out of two pies that was left. Mr. Pressed Pants is about to take care of it!
Peach Melba Ice Cream Pie
1 1/2 c. coconut
3 T. melted butter
Mix and press into the pie pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until light brown
Softened peach ice cream and softened vanilla ice cream, layered
2 c. fresh or frozen raspberries
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. lemon juice
Mix and simmer for 15 minutes. It will thicken when it cools.
Slice slightly softened pie and top with sweetened, sliced fresh peaches. Then spoon coulis over the whole thing.
