Take-out Tuesday, Breakfast for Dessert Pie

We had a special weekend recently with friends, with lots of food, fun and sun


breakfast for dessert ice cream pie


One of the treats we enjoyed was this Breakfast for Dessert pie…I know, r e a l l y ??




Favorite breakfast foods, like buttery cinnamon rolls with butter pecan “frosting” and a cup of coffee…




Combined to make this decadent ice cream pie!




Using mini cinnamon rolls from the deli bakery makes quick work of the crust,  slice them in half horizontally and place them close together in a pie dish




Once the bottom and sides are covered, squish them together to eliminate any large holes and pour butter evenly over all




Use a spoon to press down and compact the rolls




Bake crust at 350 for 10-12 minutes to firm up.  Let crust cool




Top cooled crust with a layer of softened butter pecan ice cream and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to firm up ice cream




Add the final layer of coffee ice cream and smooth out.  Cover and place in the freezer until serving




Let pie sit out for a few minutes and then cut into wedges, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon
