How to Make No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote

This No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote is a cheat recipe for me because I made this Oreo cookies pie crust just a few days ago. Cherries are spilling out of my fridge right now so cherry compote is always just ten minutes away. And you can pretty much find whipped cream hiding in a fridge corner at my house at all time. So all I needed was some creamy vanilla and chocolate swirl ice cream to fill the crust with.Oreo Cookie Pie Crust for No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote

Start with a Crust

The recipe at the end of this post has the complete ingredient list with directions to take you from start to finish. But be sure to check out my Oreo Cookies Pie Crust post from earlier this week for step by step photos of how to make this pie crust.Filling the Oreo Cookie Pie Crust with Ice Cream to make a No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote

Fill it with Ice Cream

I used Alden’s vanilla and chocolate swirl ice cream from Sprout’s. It’s so creamy and is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Let it soften at room temperature for a few minutes, it doesn’t take long because this ice cream freezes soft. Scoop it out and fill the pie crust. Then level it with an offset spatula. Freeze it again before slicing and serving.Slicing and serving No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote

Garnish and Serve

I find cherry compote to be the perfect garnish for this ice cream pie with a dollop of homemade whipped cream. Though you can explore other compote to your liking, perhaps this strawberry compote. Add the compote and whipped cream just before you serve so you don’t have to freeze the pie with all the toppings on it.No Bake Ice Cream Pie with Cherry Compote and a dollop of whipped cream

    This looks divine and I love the thickness of the cookie crust. Perfect contrast to the icecream

      My favorite part is actually the cherry compote, it goes so well with the chocolaty flavor.
