Recipe Box, Ice Cream Sundae Pie

This has been a week of decadence at the Painted Apron, with Corn on the Cob Cake and Buried Treasure Biscuit Bites

and a little retro, with a Bread Bowl Dip, and this easy dessert

I promise to lighten things up next week, but just to cap it all off, I have to remind you how easy it is to throw together an ice cream pie

We had an Ice Cream Sundae Bar for the Family Reunion, which is such an effortless way to serve dessert~


Just buy ice cream and toppings and let people build their own~


I had a lot of  ice cream leftover so I decided to make an ice cream pie and use a cookie crumb crust


I didn’t even get the cookies very uniformly crumbled, they were so full of chocolate chips and nuts


Not a bad problem at all!       With butter and a little time in the oven it held together


Let the ice cream sit out on the counter for a while and it will be ready for spreading over the baked cookie crust


Add some layers of flavors

Vanilla ice cream [or any flavor], softened

2 cups cookie crumbs [I used Pepperidge Farm Double Chocolate Nantucket]

Chocolate syrup

Caramel syrup

whipped cream for garnish

strawberries or cherries for garnish

Mix butter and cookie crumbs in a deep glass pie dish and pat into a crust.  Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.  Fill half way with a layer of ice cream and top with drizzles of syrup.  Repeat layers.  Cover and freeze at least 4 hours.  Cut into wedges to serve and garnish with whipped cream and berries.  Serve slices atop of syrup drizzled plates if desired.

    Oh YUM! I like the versatility of this recipe . . . any flavor cookie or ice cream you could imagine. Hmmmm. And it sounds super easy, except I know I would forget to leave the ice cream out or that I left it out. I may have to try this sometime though! Thanks. 🙂

    What a professional plating technique with those swirls! This looks so easy…and yummy…completely fattening…and worth the calories. Your crust looks amazing, and I’ll be doing that the next time I make a pie. What a genius you are!
