You’ll find the full recipe in savable and printable form below but here are a few step-by-step pictures to help show the process for these easy mini ice cream pies. First step is to roll out your dough and use a round cutter to create circles. Mine is a 3 1/2 inch round cutter.

Use the rounds in small fluted tartlet shell. You can find these at kitchen or homegoods stores. Look for a variety of shapes and sizes, there are lots of fun ones! Press the dough down into the fluted tartlet shell. Be sure it is greased so the mini pie shells will pop right out!

Use a fork to create holes on the bottom of the dough so it won’t rise too much and lose shape.

Scoop the ice cream into the mini tartlet shells. I used a melon baller to help make little rounds that were all the same size.

Mini Ice Cream Pies

Yield: 10 Mini Pies

Ingredients

  • 2 round pie crusts, thawed
  • 3 cups chocolate chips
  • Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks Ice Cream
  • ½ cup chopped peanuts
  • 3-1/2 inch round cookie cutter
  • 2 to 3 inch scalloped tart shell

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Roll out round pie crusts and use round cookie cutter (mine was 3-1/2 inch round) to cut out circles from pie dough. You want your round cookie cutter to be slightly larger than the top of your tart shell. I was able to cut out 5 rounds from 1 pie crust round.
  2. Grease tart shells and place pie dough rounds down into tart shells, carefully pressing the dough into the scalloped edges and bottom of the tart shell. Pierce bottom of tart shell with a fork to prevent it from baking too high.
  3. Bake tartlet shells for 8-9 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool before flipping out onto work surface.
  4. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl or a double broiler. Carefully dip the scalloped edges of the tart shells into the chocolate and flip over to let cool.
  5. Scoop mini balls of Bunny Tracks Ice Cream into the shells.
  6. Top with a drizzle of warm chocolate and a garnish of chopped peanuts.
  7. Enjoy!

    I just found this website and this was the first thing I looked at. I absolutely love “mini” desserts. I think more people eat desserts when they’re presented like this. I cannot wait to put my tartlet pans to use in some version of this. Looking forward to further exploration of your blog!
