Frozen Brandy Alexander Pie

A responsible parent would say to keep this from the kids....My friend makes this every year for her non sweet eating sister's birthday- that it was her absolute favorite thing. That is pretty high praise, so I had to make it. Once you try it, you will make it often. It has a marvelous texture due to the alcohol- it doesn't freeze as hard as regular ice cream. I think it would also be good with a chocolate crumb crust.

Directions

  1. Combine sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream, crème de cacao and brandy.
  2. Pour into prepared crust.
  3. Freeze 4 to 6 hours until firm.
  4. This is attractive served with whipped cream and grated chocolate or chocolate curls.
  5. Time includes freeze time.

The taste of this pie was excellent, and it was very easy to make. One word of caution, though: I would suggest not planning to travel any significant distance with it without an ice chest. I made it for a potluck at work, and froze the pies overnight, so they were pretty solid this morning. I thought, oh, they'll be fine on the drive in. Well, they thawed completely on my drive to work, and didn't refreeze at all - they were soupy even after 4 hours in the freezer here at work. Still tasted great, just not edible in pie form! LOL So learn from my experience. I'm giving it 4 stars because I didn't really get to eat it as pie, but the taste is fabulous. Thanks for sharing, and I'll try it again sometime without the commute!
