Whoo Hoo! This is a 2 pie week on the blog! On Wednesday, Alicia showed you her beautiful Vanilla Apple Galette. She lives in the Bay Area of California where it isn't too hot to bake. But, if you live in Phoenix, this Root Beer Float Pie is the way to go.
It is not secret that I absolutely love root beer and root beer floats. I did an entire post about how make the perfect on here. My favorite part of a root beer float is when the ice cream gets all melted into the root beer leaving creamy deliciousness. That is the part of the float that this pie reminds me of. To make it extra creamy, I use half and half in the recipe. To make the root beer flavor really come through, I use root beer extract along with real high quality root beer.
To top the root beer filling, I refuse to use a non-dairy frozen topping. Only the real stuff for me, real whipped cream! And don't forget the cherries, even though the juice gives a blood like appearance, the kids will love that! The cherry flavor really gives some authentic root beer float taste.
I hope you love it! Let me know if you give it a try!
