  • About

Ice cream pies are made up of a deep, baked pie crust filled with freshly churned or softened commercial ice cream, and usually topped with whipped cream or custard and garnished with nuts, fruit, or other toppings. Eskimo Pie is, confusingly, not a pie, but the American name for a confection the British call a Choc Ice: a small block of ice cream, usually vanilla, encased in chocolate. See eskimo pie.
