Watermelon Pie a la Mode
Show your Canadian colours with this red and white delight. Watermelon adds a twist to a classic favorite topped with sweet strawberry syrup.
6 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick pie wedge-shaped slices of pound cake
6 3-inch (7.5 cm) thick wedges of seedless watermelon the same size as the cake slices, blotted to remove excess moisture
6 scoops vanilla-flavored frozen yogurt (or ice cream)
1 cup strawberry syrup (250 mL)
Place cake slices on 6 dessert plates. Top each cake slice with a watermelon slice. Place a scoop of the frozen yogurt on top of each “pie” slice and drizzle syrup over top.
