Skip the freezing/frying race against time and make this easy fried ice cream pie instead. It’s got everything you love about the famous Mexican dessert. Come for the vanilla ice cream, stay for the crunchy cinnamon-sugar “coating” used in the bottom crust, top crust and everywhere in between. Recipe by Carrie Franzen (tablespoon.com).
