Pi Day – Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Pie

Happy Pi day! Or is it Pie day?  I remember in high school that on Pi day (cause it was math class), if you brought in a pie could get extra credit.  Too bad I don’t have any classes that I can get extra credit in now-a-days for bringing in a pie.

To honor pie day and St. Patrick’s Day which is just a few days away I made a Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Pie.  I believe this recipe came from the Bon Appetite Magazine or Family Circus Magazine many years ago.  I had clipped this recipe, and didn’t write where it came from.

Ingredients:

32 Mint creme-filled chocolate sandwich cookies

1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons of Chocolate Ice Cream Syrup Topping

8 Cups (1/2 Gallon) Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Non-Stick Cooking Spray

Directions:

1. Spray a 9-Inch pie pan with the cooking spray.

2. For the crust pulse (in a food processor) or crush 16 cookie sandwiches until fine crumbs appear.  Add the 1/4 cup chocolate ice cream syrup topping to the crumbs and mix until moistened.

3. Press crumb mixture into  sides and bottom of the pie pan. Freeze for 30 minutes.

4. Cut 8 cookie sandwiches in half. Scoop half the ice cream into the pie pan. Place scoops close together so that no crust shows.

5. Scatter the cookie halves on top of the ice cream in the pie pan. Press them lightly into the ice cream.

6. Freeze for 1 hour.

7. Scoop the remaining ice cream on top.  Cut the remaining cookies into quarters and sprinkle on top of ice cream.

8. With the remaining chocolate syrup topping drizzle it over the pie.

9. Freeze for 3 hours or until firm.

10. Serve and Enjoy!
