salted oreo ice cream pie
In Denver, there’s one place to go for ice cream.
If you are a Denverite, you know what milk carton establishment I am referring to. You have waited in the long lines that wrap around the corner even on a Wednesday night at 9pm. You know that deciding on a particular flavor is like deciding between who’s hotter: Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds.
The lines are long and by the time you get to the window to order, you have sweat dripping down your butt crack and drool running down your face. BUT! It’s the taste of the that first bite that makes the conditions survivable.
See, Little Man Ice Cream has a way of whisking you away back to nostalgia land with a single lick. You forget about immediate to-do’s, wackadoo people, and the thought that back to school is a month away. My personal favorite flavor is always dark chocolate with some sort of brownie chunks stuffed inside and dolloped on top of a waffle cone.
Since I can’t camp out in front of the iconic milk carton 24/7, I decided to go rouge and buy a carton of their famous Salted Oreo to make this epic ice cream pie. Can one say that a certain ice cream flavor can be life changing? Well, if you are in Denver and have never tried Salted Oreo, DEWWWWWW It. You’ll thank me, then hate me, then thank me.
Not only does this pie have three ingredients, but it comes together lickey-split. Because when you have ice cream on the mind things not need be complicated. Am I right? Make this pie and forget about lone lines and the dog days of summer.
