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.
2 packages Oreo cookies or any crème filled sandwich cookies
6 Tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream - dairy or parve, softened
1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
16 ounces dairy whipping cream or parve whipping cream
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Chocolate syrup (optional)
2 Tablespoons Heering Liqueur (optional)*
Crush cookies with a rolling pin or in a food processor
Combine 2/3 of cookies with melted butter or margarine
and press into a 10 or 11 " pie dish or a 9" by 13" glass or ceramic dish
Remove ice cream from freezer to begin softening- set aside
Add vanilla extract to whipping cream and whip until stiff peaks form
With a spatula, 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.
Optional: Sprinkle with nuts, and drizzle with chocolate 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 often flavor the whipping cream. Our favorite addition is Heering coffee or cherry liqueur.
