Flavored Cream

If you're looking for a dollop of something to top the Deep-Dish Pecan Pie, stir up one of these fancy flavored ice creams. Freeze cream several hours, or days, before your meal.


3 cups

Recipe from


3 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
3 tablespoons Frangelico or Kahlúa, or 1/4 cup spiced rum or 1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso coffee granules


Place ice cream in a large bowl. Drizzle with desired liqueur or sprinkle with coffee granules; stir well. Spoon ice cream into individual storage containers, cover, and freeze until firm. To serve, spoon small dollops of ice cream onto pie.

Note: Ice cream stores easily in small amounts in disposable, rigid plastic containers avaliable at large supermarkets.
