We love the tart flavor of this ‘pie’ ice cream.  If you’re a fan of a classic key lime pie, you’ll really love this ice cream.

The graham cracker crumbs really turn it into a pie-like ice cream flavor.  Get out that ice cream maker and make some pie ice cream!

My ice cream maker of choice is the Cuisinart 1 1/2-quart Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream maker.  It works great, and I use it all summer long!
