Chocolate Raspberry Pie
We used this delicious confection as a birthday cake. It is easy to make and contains fewer calories and grams of fat than regular frosted birthday cake.
1 snack-size 3-ounce pack of mini Oreo cookies
1 pint Haagen Dazs Chocolate Sorbet, softened
1 pint Haagen Dazs Rasberry Sorbet, softened
Smash the cookies into the bottom of a glass 9-inch pie pan. Scoop both sorbets on top of the cookies in small spoonfuls, alternating the two colors.
Place a piece of plastic wrap across the top of the pie and use another pan to flatten the top of the pie. Wrap the pie and freeze until firm or ready to use, at least 4 hours or overnight.
We served the pie decorated with 2 colors of whipped cream: vanilla and chocolate, along with fresh berries.
Serves 10. (about 223 calories and 1 g fat per slice - compare to same weight piece of cake with frosting = 652 calories and 35 grams of fat!)
