Jeni Britton Bauer's Baked Alaska Pie
This dessert is versatile. With sweet potato ice cream, it takes on a Thanksgiving personality. With dark chocolate, coconut, banana, or lemon ice cream, it feels like dessert à la Route 66: chocolate silk, coconut cream, banana cream, or lemon meringue pies. With Roasted Strawberry & Buttermilk Ice Cream, made with the addition of a teaspoon of rose water or a drop of essential oil, if you like, it becomes an elegant spring offering.
