easy blender tropical pie

The day I created this I was really hungry for an ice cream pie with crunch! However, I wasn't in the "fast lane" mood for grocery shopping, or hours of prepping and baking. Sweet and simple was all that was needed! This recipe follows that code: Fast, easy, and full of chilled sweetness, density and rich flavors. On a lazy day, it was close as I could get to crunchy ice cream pie without the ice cream. The cookie layer gives the pie a real boost in taste and texture. Busy moms and kids will love this pie

How To Make easy blender tropical pie

Pat portions of the cookie mixture to cover (layer) the bottom of 9" pie plate or a removeable bottom cake pan. (Reserve remainder of crumbs for the top of pie.) Store crust in refrigerator to chill while preparing filling.
