Oreo Cookie Ice Cream Pie
I made this pie for my youngest daughter in December. We were having an ice cream cake for dessert but she can't have gluten or dairy so I needed to come up with something equivalent that she could have. This is what I made and it tasted really good! You can totally make this your own, change your ice cream flavor, if you don't need it dairy/gluten free, you can make those changes too. This is a super easy and yummy treat! Kids can help with this one too!
1 bag gluten free oreos (this is the brand we use)
1/4 cup melted butter (use earth balance to keep it dairy free)
dairy free ice cream, we went with vanilla soy
chocolate syrup (Hershey's Chocolate syrup is gf/df)
Crush gluten free oreos in a food processor. Add melted butter a little at a time until the oreos are covered and are sticking together so they can form a crust. Place into a 9" round pie pan or pan of your choosing. Press the oreo mixture down into the bottom of the pan. You can go up the sides if you like or make the crust thicker and just leave it on the bottom.
Start scooping out your ice cream and placing it on top of the oreo crust until the entire crust is covered with ice cream.
Drizzle the chocolate sauce on top of the ice cream. Place in the freezer until you are ready to eat. Let stand on counter for about 5-10 minutes before cutting.
My daughter loved this! She was very happy to be having a yummy cold dessert like everyone else. We even had guests giving this a try with rave reviews. So very easy and you can play with toppings and ice cream flavors.
