Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Pie

Ice cream pie has been a favorite dessert of mine for as long as I can remember. It is simple to make, absolutely delicious and looks pretty too. There are so many options, crushed thin mint crust with mint chocolate chip ice cream or graham cracker crust with caramel praline ice cream and drizzled with a warm caramel sauce...I mean you really can't go wrong with any combination. But this right here might be my very favorite! And it doesn't hurt that New Zealand has the creamiest dreamiest ice cream I've ever had.

1 package Oreos
6 Tbs butter, melted
Cookies and Cream Ice Cream
Hot fudge ice cream topping
Whipped topping

Use a food processor to chop the Oreos into crumbs, or put in a large ziploc bag and roll with a rolling pin. Reserve a few cookies to garnish each serving with. Mix melted butter with crushed Oreos then press firmly into a pie dish. Soften (but don't melt) ice cream in the microwave (or leave on counter while preparing crust), then scoop into crust and spread evenly around. Cover the pie with aluminum foil and freeze for 3-4 hours. When ready to serve, slice pie and put on plates. Drizzle each serving with hot fudge, a dallop of whipped topping and a single Oreo.
