Are you thinking that Summer can't get here fast enough?
It has been a heck of a Winter and sorry to say it...we have a ways to go!
Why not have a little fun this or next weekend and have an indoor Barbecue!!
What Summer foods are missed most by your family? Cook them up!
Come dressed in Summer attire. Have everyone share 1 thing they can't wait to do this Summer!
Finish it off with these fun to make and great to eat Ice Cream Pies!
Don't forget the sunscreen!
Pre-made crust(s) of your choice
(cookie crumb, graham cracker)
1 quart softened ice cream
Choice of a few decorative toppings such as
mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, mini candies, cookie crumbs, berries, etc
Fill pie crust(s) with softened ice cream, spreading evenly.
Freeze filled pie crusts for at least 1 hour.
When ready to serve, take them out of the freezer and let sit for a few minutes while you assemble small bowls filled with your chosen toppings.
Use toppings to create your pie(s)and enjoy!
You could also make your own crusts. Using a pie plate or mini pie plates, crush chosen crumbs, mix with a bit of melted butter, press onto pie plate(s) and you are ready to go.
Ideas for crusts include, crushed chocolate wafers, Oreo's, vanilla cookies, graham crackers, gingerbread cookies, snickerdoodles or you favorite cookie.
To crush the cookies use your food processor or blender and crush in batches by pulsing until crumbs. You can also place the cookies on large plastic bags, press out the air and roll/smash with a rolling pin...not only is that fun but it's great exercise fro your arms!
