Peanutty Ice Cream Pie Recipe
You don't need an ice cream freezer to enjoy homemade ice cream. Re-create that handmade taste with from-scratch ingredients ... or start with purchased ice cream and create a nutty ice cream pie.
“A friend gave me this recipe almost 20 years ago,” says Donna Cline of Pensacola, Florida. “The unique crust makes these cool slices extra peanutty and perfect for any occasion.”
- 1 1/3 cups finely chopped peanuts
- 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup flaked coconut
- 3 tablespoons chopped peanuts
- 1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened
- Miniature M&M’s or semisweet chocolate chips
How to make it
Combine the peanuts, butter, and sugar; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch pie plate. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and corn syrup. Add coconut and peanuts. Stir in ice cream just until combined. Spoon into crust. Cover and freeze overnight or until firm. Just before serving, sprinkle with M&M’s or chocolate chips. Serves: 6-8.
