Pecan Ball Sundae
Ayres is no longer in business, but had a very strong influence on my life. It was my first job out of high school and my grandmother retired from Ayres.
L.S. Ayres Department Store in Downtown Indianapolis was such a landmark for the company as well as the city of Indianapolis. The Indiana State Museum houses a working replica of the Ayres Tea Room and they serve some of the same dishes the Tea Room was famous for.
- ice cream, your favorite flavor (ayres served with vanilla)
- pecans, chopped
- hot fudge sauce, your favorite brand
- whipped cream, optional
- marachino cherries, optional
Roll ball of ice cream in chopped pecans.
At this point ice cream balls can be placed back in the freezer, if serving later.
