Seasonal Ice Cream Pies at Creamistry

With cool weather and football in full swing we put the bathing suits away and break out the long sleeve shirts and sweaters as we focus our attention to the Fall and holiday season. Foods are seasonal too and for a limited time Creamistry, where ice cream meets science, is introducing Ice Cream Pies with a seasonal twist at their 4 locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix.

The Earl Grey tea Ice Cream Pie is infused with Earl Grey tea, topped with whipped cream and chocolate curls then sprinkled with dark cocoa powder.

The Caramel Apple Pie Ice Cream Pie tastes like its been home-baked and is made fresh when you order it. The flaky pie crust is filled with apple ice cream, cinnamon apple compote then finished sweet caramel and topped with a crispy streusel topping. Hard to go wrong with these delicious ingredients.
