Mint Chocolate Chip Pie - Barbara Bakes
This recipe comes from Barbara Bakes. If you have not checked her blog, you should go and visit. Barbara presents a well organized and delicious blog. Each recipe is explained clearly and has lovely photographs to inspire.
I am thrilled that Barbara allowed me to share this recipe with you. This is one of those QEDs that does use prepared segments (pie shell, ice cream) but it is one that taking this path is well worth it. Just look at the photo below and you know that this is the truth. To throw together a beautiful pie, in a short time and come up with this, has to be a glorious moment. I just have to try for that moment.
Stop by the grocery store on your way home and buy some Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. I love Dryer’s, but buy your favorite, just make sure it’s green. Also pick up one of those pre-made Oreo crusts. If you want to decorate it, also buy some whipping cream, canned or regular.
By the time you get home from the grocery store your ice cream will have softened up a little bit. Dump all the ice cream into a large bowl and stir it until it’s a soft serve consistency and you can easily spread it into the Oreo crust. Pop it into the freezer to firm up while you eat dinner.
Decorate with whipped cream, grated chocolate and green sprinkles as desired. A drizzle of chocolate syrup wouldn’t hurt either.
