The beauty of this ice cream pie isn't just that it's amazingly decadent (and therefore a guaranteed crowd-pleaser), but that it can also be made days in advance and then hauled out of the freezer just moments before serving. Party desserts don't get any better than that!
Use any size of mini-tart pan you like for these sweet little tarts. If you have leftover dough, you can always roll it out, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, cut into shapes, and bake into that childhood comfort, piecrust cookies.
This ice cream has a delicate flavor; if you prefer a deeper taste, substitute a darker honey. Anne Walker and Sam Mogannam, the couple behind Bi-Rite Creamery and Bi-Rite Market, pick the figs from a tree in their garden, drizzle them with honey from their hives, and roast them in their outdoor wood-burning oven. They’re also delicious over vanilla ice cream.
