When it comes to all-American eats, the pie and ice cream combo is just about as classic as it gets! Is there anything more satisfying than creamy, cool ice cream with a warm slice of pie? Thankfully, pie and ice cream season is upon us! This year, don’t settle for plain old pumpkin and vanilla. We’ve got five creative pie and ice cream pairings for you to serve this holiday season that your guests will love!

Pumpkin Pie with Gingerbread Crust with Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream
Pumpkin Pie with Gingerbread Crust with Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream

This classic Thanksgiving recipe is extra silky smooth because we used half and half instead of sweetened condensed milk. This also makes it slightly less sweet, which means it pairs perfectly with the ginger cookie crust and a scoop of Tillamook Caramel Butter Pecan Ice Cream. Pumpkin, caramel, and pecan – the trifecta of sweet thanksgiving flavors all in one dish!

Dutch Apple Pie with Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream

This apple pie is stepped up a notch with delicious oat crumble on top. Sometimes it’s best not to mess with a classic, so we topped this pie with a scoop of Tillamook Old-Fashioned Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s tough to find a better combination than creamy ice cream, crunchy topping and sweet apple filling! P.S. we won’t tell if you have it for post-Thanksgiving breakfast too.

Chocolate Bourbon Pie with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

This combo is a fantastically grown-up mix of two Southern classics: chocolate pie and mint juleps. The decadent chocolate pie has a complex and warm flavor with the addition of bourbon, which is perfect next to the sweet and cool Tillamook Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Cranberry Pear Pie with Oregon Hazelnut and Salted Caramel Ice Cream

We can all agree that cranberry sauce is rarely the star of the show at the Thanksgiving dinner table. That’s because cranberries were really meant to be enveloped in a golden pie crust with pears! The only thing missing is the nutty, sweet flavor of Tillamook Oregon Hazelnut and Salted Caramel Ice Cream.

Maple Pecan Pie with Tillamook Mudslide Ice Cream

Pecan Pie is the cranberry sauce of Thanksgiving desserts. It needs to make an appearance, but it’s usually outshined by pumpkin and apple. This year, give it center stage by using maple syrup to sweeten the pie and topping it with Tillamook Mudslide Ice Cream. Your guests will swoon for this unique combination!

Great recipes! I love Tillamook products. Do not eat any cheese except Tillamook.

I'll only use Tillamook cheese since I found it and the ice cream is so good same for the sour cream, butter etc. Best products out there. It's too bad there's no Tillamook milk since it'd be good to have the best also.

I haven't been able to find any Tillamook non Greek yogurt anymore in our area which is sad since my youngest son and I love them and use those for snacks instead of junk food when hungry.
