This desert is easy and people love it. It is the first dessert to go when I take it to an event. While it is done in steps with an hour set up time it only takes minutes to actually assemble.

How to Make Pistachio Ice Cream Dessert


  1. Take ice cream out of freezer and place in a mixing bowl, allow to soften so it is easy to stir.
  2. Crush RITZ crackers to a fine consistency.
    Melt butter or margarine.
  3. Mix together and press into a 9x13 cake pan
  4. Mix milk and pudding together slowly. Blend in softened ice cream and spread over RITZ crust. Allow to set up in refrigerator for an hour.
  5. Spread softened Cool Whip over Ice Cream and return to refrigerator.
  6. Toast coconut in 350 degree oven until nicely colored. WATCH CLOSELY. Remove from oven and spread over baking sheet until room temperature. Remove 9x13 pan from refrigerator and sprinkle coconut over the top. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. I like to make it up the night before.
