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.
- Combine sweetened condensed milk, whipped cream, crème de cacao and brandy.
- Pour into prepared crust.
- Freeze 4 to 6 hours until firm.
- This is attractive served with whipped cream and grated chocolate or chocolate curls.
- 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!
