Where To Find Ice Cream Pies For Thanksgiving
Living in SoCal means things like ice cream and Thanksgiving don't have to be mutually exclusive. (Just look at the Thanksgiving dinner flavors from Salt & Straw.) In a town that embraces creativity as much as L.A., something like an ice cream pie would be great to bring to a potluck, office party, or family dinner. These unique holiday desserts will add something special to the table, and you don't even have to bust out your rolling pin.
Here's where you can find them:
CoolHaus: Known for their innovative ice cram sammies, CoolHaus has upped the holiday ante by crafting ice cream pies for the first time this year. They'll have a Bourbon Pumpkin flavor and a Sweet Potato Marshmallow flavor, both with a graham cracker crust. Pre-ordering has finished, but the $25 pies will be available in their grab and go freezer tomorrow and Wednesday. (They close at 5 p.m. Wednesday evening.) You can find out more info on their site.
