Ice Cream Pie - A KosherEye Signature Recipe
This is truly one of the most popular desserts we serve. If we ever write a cookbook, it would be included!
It is adapted from a classic Oreo Cookie recipe, and can be prepared dairy or parve. Of course, it is a no-bake creation.
1 1/2 lbs creme filled sandwich cookies such as Oreos, Trader Joe's "Joe Joe's" or any crème filled sandwich cookies you like
6 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1/2 gallon ice cream - dairy or parve, softened
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
16 ounces dairy whipping cream or parve whipping cream
such as RichWhip
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Chocolate or caramel syrup (optional)
2 Tablespoons liqueur (optional)*
Crush cookies with a rolling pin or in a food processor
Combine 2/3 of cookies with melted butter or margarine
Press into a 10 to 12" pie dish or a 9" by 13" glass or ceramic dish
Remove ice cream from freezer to begin softening- set aside
Whip cream with vanilla extract until stiff peaks form
With a spatula, or with a mixer on low, combine softened ice cream, vanilla and half of whipped cream
Spread mixture over crust and freeze until firm. (at least 1 hour)
Spread remainder of whipped cream on top. Then sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs and/or chopped nuts.
Optional: Drizzle with syrup.
Keep frozen. Remove from freezer approximately 20 minutes prior to serving. Serves 15.
Any flavor ice cream, filling or topping of choice can be added. Simply, split the ice cream into 2 parts. Add ½ - and top with filling of choice. Freeze for about an hour, and add second half of ice cream. Spread with remaining whipped cream and toppings.
*To take this pie up a notch, we sometimes flavor the whipping cream with a liqueur such as Heering coffee or cherry or Godiva.
