Strawberry Vanilla Ice Cream Pie

This Pie is a delightful mix of cold sweetness and cookie crunch.

This is my 2nd time making this yummy dessert. This dessert is an adaptation from the posted recipe from Life Made Sweeter.

My family requested this pie as the days are getting warmer and their taste buds are switching from warm desserts to cooler ones.

I made this pie in an 8 x 8 pan. I find that it’s easier to cut equal pieces and we don’t make too much dessert, since only 3 out of 5 of us eat it (my little ones don’t like strawberry ice cream).
I let this chill overnight and when it was ready, I cut it into 12 smaller pieces. While the pieces are small, the dessert goes farther (or so you would think) between the 3 of us.
The first piece went to hubby. He is the one who originally wanted a dessert like this, so I let him make sure it tastes ok. My oldest however, is a fiend for this dessert. He raved to his friends about it and so when I told him it was ready, the next 4 pieces went to he and his friends. I was able to get 2 out of the 12 pieces of this dessert over the course of a week.
Hubby made sure that he got the last piece, claiming “dibs”, when he found out there was only 1 left.

This dessert can be made in so many ways. I have had the request to replace the strawberry ice cream with mint chocolate chip, the next time I make it.
