Ice Cream Pie

Posted by Kimberly:

A couple of weeks ago, we went home for a "Coke" family reunion. While we were there, my mom wanted to celebrate my son's 9th birthday since he was having a slumber party this year and not a traditional birthday party. So, she asked him what his favorite cake was. Blake is quite the picky eater, (I cannot say a whole lot because so was I when I was his age.) so he doesn't really like many cakes. What he does like is ice cream pie, and that was what he wanted. I emailed mom the recipe so she could grant his request. He was so excited to eat it, and so was I because I hadn't made it in a while.

Ice Cream Pie

Crust

1 lb. bag oreo cookies
1/2 cup melted butter

Place oreos in a platic bag and crush with rolling pin. Mix crumbled cookies and melted butter. Press into bottom of a 9x13 freezer-safe pan.

I have used two store-bought oreo cookie pie crusts also. This is a great way to make one for your family and share one with someone else. You will have leftover topping/sauce because the pie crusts are not as deep. Just refrigerate what is left over and spoon it over the top of each piece of pie as it is served.

Filling

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream

Take carton off of ice cream and cut ice cream into even slices beginning at one end. Lay the slices on top of crust. I cut little pieces and feel in the holes or gaps. I also take a spoon and smooth the ice cream out a little. Put this in the freezer while you make the topping, so the ice cream can harden.

Topping

2 cups powdered sugar
1 can evaporated milk
2/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
peanuts (optional)

Bring sugar, milk, chocolate chips, and butter to a boil. Simmer uncovered for 8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Cool sauce completely. Pour sauce over ice cream. Freeze for at least one hour before serving. If desired, the peanuts can be sprinkled on top of the ice cream before the sauce is poured over the top.

This sauce is delicious and really is what makes this pie so yummy! In fact, it is good just eaten with a spoon by itself!!
