- 1 1/2 cup graham wafer crumbs
- 1/4 cup butter melted
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Coffee Caramel Sauce:
- 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
- 8 cups premium vanilla ice cream
MethodIn bowl, stir together graham wafer crumbs, butter and cinnamon; press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie plate. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until firm, about 8 minutes. Let cool.
Coffee Caramel Sauce: In heavy saucepan, stir sugar with 1/4 cup (50 mL) water over medium heat until dissolved. Bring to boil; boil vigorously, without stirring but brushing down side of pan often, until dark amber, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Standing back and averting face, add cream; whisk until smooth. Whisk in butter and salt until smooth. Whisk in coffee granules until melted. Let cool.
Drizzle 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the sauce over crust. Freeze until firm, 20 minutes.
Filling: Let ice cream stand at room temperature until slightly softened, about 10 minutes. Transfer to large bowl; drizzle with remaining sauce. Using butter or palette knife, swirl sauce into ice cream; spread in pie crust, smoothing top. Freeze until firm, about 3 hours. (Make-ahead: Cover and freeze for up to 24 hours.)
