Creamsicle Ice Cream Pie

Circle B Kitchen

This ice cream pie is ridiculously delicious for how easy it is to make. I used Trader Joe's Chocolate Kitty cookies for the crust, but any chocolate wafer cookie will work. I also used our homemade vanilla ice cream and homemade orange sherbet, but of course, store-bought would make this even easier. I topped the pie with a scattering of Kitty Cookies, but it would be equally as good with a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a sprinkling of grated orange zest.

You will need...

For the Crust

1 1/2 cups of chocolate cookie crumbs

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup sugar

For the Pie

1 1/4 cups of orange sherbet (here's my recipe), softened

1 1/2 cups of vanilla ice cream (here's my recipe), softened

Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray

In a medium bowl, combine the cookie crumbs, the melted butter and sugar. Using your fingers, press the crumbs into the prepared pie plate.

Spread the orange sherbet over the cookie crust, spreading evenly over the top. Place the pie in the freezer for at least an hour.

Remove the pie from the freezer, spread the vanilla ice cream over the top of the orange sherbet and return the pie to the freezer. Freeze for at least two hours before serving. Top the pie with crumbled chocolate cookies or a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a sprinkling of orange zest.
