Perry’s Ice Cream Guide to Thanksgiving Dessert

When it comes to Thanksgiving dessert it is clearly a pie time, nobody can argue with that. Perry’s Ice Cream Thanksgiving Dessert Guide adds a twist to the classic tradition: why serve pie and ice cream, when you can have two-in-one? Our Thanksgiving dinner desserts are very easy to make, some of them require ZERO preparation!

  1. Pumpkin Pie Puffs

You will need:


  • Temper the ice cream by putting it out on the counter for a couple minutes before scooping
  • Cut the tops off the puffs
  • Scoop the ice cream into the puffs and cover with tops of the puffs
  • Place on a tray and return to a freezer (cover the puffs with plastic wrap)
  • Add whipped cream on top before serving
  1. Double Apple Pie

You will surprise your family and guests with not your usual Vanilla on the side of the Apple Pie. Serve Apple Pie (or Pumpkin Pie) ice cream!


  1. Stuffed Apples

You will need:


  • Scoop out top and middle of large apples
  • Scoop Apple Pie ice cream into apples
  • Freeze the apples until ready to serve
  • Before serving drizzle with caramel sauce and sprinkle with nuts
