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.....

How to Make Easy Peppermint Ice Cream Pie

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! :)
