grandma's cookbook - Ice Cream Pie

Today I am happy to share with you a recipe for pie "goodness" - a recipe your grandchildren are able to make - ice cream pie! This is such a tasty and simple pie, and summer is just around the corner, so, what could possibly be better?

Ingredients - 
  • Heavy whipping cream - one pint per pie
  • Vanilla ice cream - something creamy is best, but get whatever you like
  • Peanut butter
  • Cookie or graham cracker pie crust
  • Favorite toppings - strawberries, chocolate syrup, mini chocolate chips, M&Ms, etc.
Directions -
  • Soften ice cream - 1/2 container per pie (about 1/4 gallon)
  • Mix whipping cream
  • Fold in softened ice cream
  • Pour into pie crust
  • If making peanut butter ice cream pie, add peanut butter and mix throughout (we will add about 1/2 cup for one pie, but use what you prefer to get it to be as peanutty as you like.
  • When you serve, have toppings available, so people are able to add what they like to their pie.
  • Enjoy
There are several things about this recipe which make it one of my favorite summer-time pies . . . 
  1. It is ice cream and whipping cream (with toppings) . . . what isn't there to love about this pie!!!
  2. The recipe is simple enough my grandsons are able to make it with just a little help.
  3. It is ice cream and whipping cream (with toppings) . . . what isn't there to love about this pie!!!
  4. It tends to be warm in the summer, so a cool pie is a great way to celebrate - anything!
  5. Did I mention, it is ice cream and whipping cream (with toppings) . . . what isn't there to love about this pie!!!
Consider making two pies - a vanilla pie (so you are able to top it with strawberries for a strawberry sundae ice cream pie!!!!) and a peanut butter ice cream pie (because it will be wonderful!) 

If you make this pie, how will you top it?
