Tiramisu Ice Cream Pie has all the components of tiramisu, but served as an easy to make pie!
Traditional tiramisu is a layered dessert with coffee and rum soaked lady fingers, chocolate, and mascarpone cheese.
For my pie version I made the crust with lady fingers.
And incorporated coffee flavored ice cream, and top it with a mix of rum and mascarpone.
It’s the perfect summer dessert with the ice cream, and something a little out of the ordinary for any occasion 🙂
How to Make Tiramisu Ice Cream Pie
So this dessert is not difficult, but it does take some planning ahead for time in the freezer.
The first step is freezing a package of lady fingers.
I found while recipe testing this, when frozen, they were MUCH easier to pulse in the food processor.
Pulse a few times and then add 6 tablespoons melted butter and 2 tablespoons sugar.
Then pulse a few more times.
Pour the crust in a pie pan and use either a spoon or a cup to flatten the bottom and form the crust up the sides of the pan.
Put this in the freezer for about 2 hours to set up.
You’ll want to soften 2 pints of coffee flavored ice cream before filling the pie crust.
I set my pints out for about 30 minutes and they were the perfect consistency.
Add the softened ice cream to the crust, use the back of a spoon to form in it the crust, and smooth the top.
Then back into the freezer for 3 more hours.
Right before serving, make the topping for this with mascarpone cheese and rum!
Probably not a kid friendly dessert with the rum, so if serving to kids add 3 tablespoons coffee or milk in place of the rum.
Perhaps the adult could enjoy their rum on side.
Whisk together the rum and mascarpone.
It does take a minute or two to come together, but eventually it will become this creamy consistency.
Spread the topping and add some chocolate shavings and you have yourself a gorgeous Tiramisu Ice Cream Pie 🙂
You can certainly refreeze any leftovers.
But fair warning, when refreezing, the mascarpone gets frozen and is just slightly awkward to cut, still delicious though 🙂

Tiramisu Ice Cream Pie is an easy to make no bake dessert with a lady finger crust, coffee ice cream and a rum and mascarpone topping
- 1 7 oz package lady fingers frozen
- 2 Tbsps sugar
- 6 Tbsps melted butter
- 2 pints coffee ice cream
- 1 8 oz container mascarpone cheese
- 3 Tbsps rum
- chocolate shavings
Put the frozen lady fingers in a food processor or blender. Pulse a few times. Add the sugar and melted butter and pulse a few more times.
Put this mixture into a pie pan and use a cup or spoon to help form into a pie crust, flat on the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
Let the coffee ice cream come to room temp (I set mine out for 30 minutes) and put in the pie crust. Use a spoon to flatten the top. Place back in the freezer for 3 hours.
Mix the mascarpone cheese and rum together (it does take a minute or two to come together) in a bowl and spread evenly on the pie, sprinkle chocolate shavings over top and serve.
Note: You can replace the rum with 3 tablespoons coffee or milk if desired.
