What Is Billy Miner Pie? 

Made popular by a restaurant called The Keg Steakhouse + Bar, Billy Miner Pie is simply an ice cream pie recipe. However, its name has a bit of a funny story. You see, according to legend, Bill Miner was Canada’s first train robber. However, referred to as “the gentleman bandit,” it was said that Billy never used violence while committing his crimes. As a result, he became a sort of folktale hero, and the restaurant named their delicious pie after him. Whatever the reason, the recipe is crazy good, and we knew we had to recreate it! 

Ice Cream Pie Ingredients 

  • Butter – Butter helps add rich flavor to the pie crust while also holding the Oreo crumbs together. However, it can also be substituted with coconut oil. 
  • Oreo Cookies – For this recipe, we stuck with regular chocolate Oreo cookies, but feel free to use a similar creme cookie if you prefer. 
  • Unsweetened Dark Chocolate – Dark chocolate helps add antioxidants and a super decadent taste. However, you could swap it out for milk chocolate instead. 
  • Granulated Sugar – Granulated sugar works best to sweeten up the bitterness of the dark chocolate, because it dissolves easily into the mixture. 
  • Evaporated Milk – Adding evaporated milk to the chocolate sauce helps to thicken it while also creating a creamy texture and richer taste. 
  • Vanilla Extract – Don’t forget your vanilla! It’s crucial for bringing out the natural flavors of the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Ice Cream – A high-quality vanilla ice cream pairs perfectly with the chocolate sauce and cookies! 
  • Edible Cookie Dough – Make sure you opt for a cookie dough that’s made without eggs so it’s always safe to eat. 

Time-Saving Tip: If you want, you could buy a pre-made Oreo cookie crust from your local grocery store instead of making it yourself.
