About

I decided to try to make a Baked Alaska without actually baking anything since (as usual) I was short on time and wanted to bring a homemade dessert over to our family get-together last night after work. I picked up the ingredients on the way home and it literally took about 10 minutes to prepare this dessert from start to finish.

Even though it's no-bake, you DO need to torch it. But what a nice excuss to buy yourself a blow torch! Luckily my hubby had one handy (of course...).

Everyone really enjoyed it and had fun watching the pie being torched (especially the kids!!)
