Ice cream pies are one of my most favorite desserts and this one is by far my fave. The chocolate peanut butter ice cream pie I posted last August is a close second.

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8
Ingredients
Crust
  • 25 Oreo cookies, crushed
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
Pie
  • 1 carton Breyer's Oreo Cookies & Cream Mint ice cream (or your favorite mint ice cream)
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate sauce
  • Optional toppings: Hot fudge, chopped nuts, chocolate chips, crushed Oreos
Instructions
Crust
  1. Place crushed Oreo cookies and melted butter in a medium bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Press into a 9-inch pie pan. Set aside.
Pie
  1. Soften ice cream by letting sit on counter for 10 to 15 minutes or microwaving on low power (30%), stirring between 30-second intervals.
  2. Gently scoop into pie crust and spread evenly.
  3. Place in freezer until set (approximately 3 to 4 hours).
  4. Remove a few minutes before serving so ice cream softens enough to slice. Serve topped with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
Notes
* I like to use my food processor to crush the Oreo cookies. You get a much finer crumb and texture that way, but a good ol' rolling pin and Ziploc bag work well too.
