Yummy or interesting PIE A LA MODE combos?

I love anything warm with ice cream melting on top and usually order apple pie a la mode. But I recently had some berry pie with ice cream that tasted slightly strawberryish, which really complemented the acidity of the berry filling. Now I'm wondering what other flavors go well together.

I'm imagining a pear tart or pie with ice cream of subtle gingery flavour. mmmmm!!

  1. The best alamode mix I ever had was an apple crumb pie with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream...not terribly creative but incredible.

    1. Had a terrific pear tart with goat cheese ice cream at Artisanal last fall. Went great with calvados.

      1. Mango crisp with coconut ice cream a la mode.

        1. Hot pineapple pie with chocolate ice cream.

          1. Apple crisp (or probably any apple-based dessert) with dulce de leche ice cream. With a little fleur de sel if you like.
