Chocolate Cinnamon Pie with Cinnamon Crumbs Ice Cream

Oaaaaaaah *cleaning up the dust*

Sorry for another "what day is today?" post...took so long for me to gathered my blog's writing mood, teehee.
I'm still in the Mood  of Holiday (also called Lazy Disorder), even though i'm absolutely doing nothing but complaining about my life ;p Nooo...i'm just kidding. I'm doing things that i used to love like reading books (i'm doing a reading challenge with my Friend and My Professor...yeah one of my prof from University...she's so friendly, nice, and cool, and young) , cooking like almost everyday, and writing another novel (God, please let me finish this novel, i don't want this project stop in the middle of nowhere again and again and again), Photographing, and exercising (MUFFIN TOP TUMMY PLEASE GO AWAY!!).
Those activities are awesome and so far my depression isn't that complicated anymore, and i become happier, a lil bit healthier, and postiver (is this word even exist?)

Soooo, like i've told you on my last post, i baked a new year's eve dessert called Chocolate Cinnamon pie with Cinnamon Crumbs Ice Cream, it was delicious not too sweet not too bitter, just perfectly delicious. I've shared the picture on my Path and Instagram, so if you ever accidently seeing my instagram, you'll know.

So here's the recipes :

Chocolate Cinnamon Pie :

For the Crust :

12 Digestive Biscuits (I used McVities from England, but you can use whatever biscuits you want, like graham cracker, or marie regal, or milk biscuits, or even vanilla waffer)
1/2 tsp of Cinnamon Ground
1 Tbs of Granulated Sugar
50 gr Unsalted butter melted

For the Pie Filling
250 ml Whipping Cream
290 gr Dark Chocolate chopped
a pinch of salt
1 tsp of Cinnamon Ground

Directions :
Break the biscuits into tiny pieces like sand (you can put it in a zipper bag and crush it with rolling pin, or you can use food processor)

If you're using food processor, after the biscuits mixture is like sand, you can add the rest of the ingredients and mix it until well blended. But if you don't, pour the biscuits mixture into a bowl and add the cinnamon ground and sugar, mix it well, and then add the melted butter, and mix it with a wooden spoon or a fork until well blended.

After that, pour the mixture into a 20 or 23cm (8 or 9') pie tin / tart tin (the glass one is good!) and press it evenly, until there's no more hole (if you have a leftover of the biscuits, save it in a container and you can keep it for any urgent situation like hungry or anything else, hehehe). Bake it in a preheated oven (180'c) for 10-15 minutes or until the colour turn brown.

Cool the crust completely then put it in the fridge until the filling is ready.

Now for the pie filling which is the fun part of this recipe hehehe.
Heat the cream in a sauce pan (medium heat) until the little bubbly come out on the edge. You just want a little bubble, not boiling it okay, so keep your eyes on it!!!
Then add the chocolate, make sure you chopped it, other wise it'll make a lil lumpy like dandruff after that. Gently stir it with a wooden spoon til all the chocolate melt away, then add the salt and the cinnamon ground, stir it again for 30 seconds.

Turn off the heat, stir it again for a minute. Now you can take out the crust, pour the chocolate filling, and put it back on the fridge for like an hour or overnight!

Serve it with whipped cream, or ice cream. I added my Homemade Cinnamon Crumbs Ice Cream (No machine needed).

Homemade Cinnamon Crumbs Ice Cream :

So, this Ice Cream without Machine recipe is from Gemma Stafford Youtube Channel, it's so easy and delicious and awesome at the same time. Check the Video recipe here !!

Ice Cream Base Ingredients :

14 ounces (1 can/ 400ml) sweetened condensed milk (fat-free or regular) cold
2 cups (16oz/450 ml ) whipping cream, cold


Beat cold heavy cream on medium in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer) until stiff peaks form.
Turn down the speed a little and pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream. (Stir in vanilla extract/essence if you want). 
aaaand VOILA you have your ice cream base and you can add any flavor you want!! So since this recipe is for Cinnamon Crumbs, here we gooooo...

If you have the leftover biscuits crumb mixture (definetly have) then add it into the ice cream base mixture and add more pinch of cinnamon ground. Then place in a large resealable container and freeze at least 6 hours or overnight before eating.

Now you have the Ice Cream, now place a scoop of the ice cream and place it on top of a slice of the chocolate cinnamon pie!!
