Easy Peppermint Ice Cream Pie

Just a quick pie I threw together in an attempt to recreate a "cake" served at the holidays by our local sports bar. One of my daughter's FAVORITES!! Since we have a number of December birthdays including hers, she insists I make this every year!
"Cook" time is freezer time (although just suggested, I made mine and froze overnight). **This really CAN be modified with your favorite flavor ice cream and garnished accordingly to suit the Holiday or event. ;)

Egg Nog ice cream with crushed snickerdoodles, pumpkin ice cream at Thanksgiving with candied pecans and light caramel garnish, a nice peach or berry ice cream in spring or summer with fresh berries and drizzled white chocolate or caramel. Combinations are endless.....

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

2 Hr

Method:

Refrigerate/Freeze

Ingredients

2 large
graham cracker pie crust, ready made (i do 1 regular and 1 chocolate, a keebler and an oreo)
1 3/4 qt
dreyer's grand limited edition peppermint ice cream, softened (1 container)
16 oz
cool whip topping
candy cane roca, chocolate sauce, etc (garnish as desired)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soften ice cream on counter until "workable" (soft enough to stir in Cool Whip but not too liquid).
2
Mix in full tub of Cool Whip- do not over blend as Cool Whip will become runny.
3
Scoop half of mixture into each of 2 pie crusts.
4
Smooth evenly in crust.
5
Cover with lid, if available, or wrap.
6
Place in freezer for at least 2 hours. (Could be less, I don't know as I always do ahead and leave them overnight).
7
Prior to serving, remove cover and smooth any voids (a slightly warm spoon run under warm water works well).
8
Garnish with crushed candy cane or starlight mints, chocolate curls, peppermint bark, chocolate sauce, or crushed Candy Cane Roca - my favorite.
9
Enjoy! :)
