How to make Cherry Coke Float Pie:
We’re going to start this pie with the crust. I think most dessert pies out there have graham cracker crusts, but we’re making a vanilla wafer cookie crust for this ice cream float pie.
Making a Vanilla Wafer Cookie Pie Crust:
Preheat your oven to 350F.
Pour the vanilla wafers into a large Ziploc bag and take out your anger on them as you crush them into tiny pieces.
Once you’ve smashed them to crumbs, mix them with melted butter and sugar until they remind you of wet sand.
Take them and firmly press them into the pie dish.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and Let cool.
Cherry Coke Float Pie Filling:
Alright, now an ice cream float is pretty much vanilla ice cream with a soda poured on top of it. So our pie filling needs to have somewhat the same consistency and flavor but we want to be able to slice this pie.
So to get that result, we’re going to make a filling using my no churn ice cream recipe as the base with the cherry coke as the soda/fizz!
Add Cherry Coke, heavy cream, vanilla pudding and powdered sugar to bowl of a stand mixer.
Mix until super thick.
Pour that on into the pie dish and pop that sweet thing into the freezer.
Since this pie has an ice cream base, we’re going to need to freeze this pie for at least 8 hours or overnight.
For extra Cherry Cola Flavor = boil 1 cup cherry coke for 20-30 minutes until reduced. Let cool and add 3 tablespoons of condensed cherry coke to pie filling while mixing.
Homemade Whipped Cream:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine whipping cream, sugar and vanilla extract.
Whip on high until firm peaks form. Pipe onto cold pie right before serving.
Garnish pie with cherries. Serve cold.
Slicing Tip: If you’ve having trouble slicing through the cold crust, let the pie sit at room temperate for about 5 minutes. This will make it easier to slice.
