23 Oct 2017 Lotus-Cookie Biscoff Ice Cream Pie & Link to New Shiur
If you follow these posts, you may have noticed that I didn’t send out a recipe last week. It was not an oversight. I figured that we could all use a break after the chagim and I was not sure how many would have been interested in a recipe right after Yom Tov! Now that it’s a week later, here we are, back on track.
This recipe actually does not meet my requirement of healthy. At all. It is anything but. However, it is very easy to throw together and really delicious.
My sister-in-law gave me one of these ice cream pies over Yom Tov, and everyone loved it when I served it for dessert. When I asked her for the recipe, she replied, “I’m not sure it’s really a recipe, I feel like people are just making it.” However, she did give me the basic recipe, which I proceeded to make at home. Results were as winning as when she made it and gave it to me. My son went away for Shabbos this past week, and he took a pie along with him to give to the hostess. He said they loved it and there was not a piece left!
So for those of you who have not yet heard of this dessert (like myself, pre-chagim), here is a deliciously sweet and slightly-addictive Lotus-Cookie Biscoff Ice Cream Pie.
Defrost till softened: 1 container (56 oz) of Parve Vanilla Ice Cream (I used Klein’s). Transfer the softened ice cream to a large bowl. Add in:
3/4 of a (400g) jar of Lotus Biscoff Biscuit Spread. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, mix the softened ice cream and Lotus spread together. Add in 26 Lotus cookies, broken into coarse chunks.
Mix all together. Divide the mixture between 2 ready-made graham cracker pie crusts. The pie crusts will be very full. Cover the pies loosely and freeze. Serve frozen.
Note: Make sure the Lotus spread and cookies are kosher. I know this sounds like a silly note for those following these posts, but I saw them last week in Costco without a hechsher. Please check the package before buying. The kosher groceries carry these products with Kosher certification.
Note: For a prettier presentation, crush some more Lotus cookies, mix with a handful of mini chocolate chips (or try a handful of parve caramel chips!), and top the pie with the cookie-chocolate chip mixture.
Note: This dessert would be awesome made with real vanilla ice cream. Try it for your next dairy meal!
