Ice Cream Cooke Pie

Oh Betty, you know how to make life sweet.  Check out this recipe:

2        pints mint chocolate chip ice cream, slightly softened
1        package (6 ounces) ready-to-use chocolate-flavored pie crust
1 1/4  cups crushed chocolate-covered mint cookies
1        cup chocolate fudge topping

Spread 1 pint of the ice cream in pie crust. Sprinkle 1 cup of the crushed cookies over ice cream. Cover and freeze 1 hour.

Spread remaining pint of ice cream over cookies. Cover and freeze about 3 hours or until firm.
Let stand at room temperature about 10 minutes before cutting. Serve with fudge topping; sprinkle with remaining cookies. Cover and freeze any remaining pie.

Variation: S’mores Ice-Cream Pie!
Put a spin on this ice-cream pie by using a graham cracker crust, chocolate ice cream and chocolate-coated marshmallow cookies.

*Is your ice cream too hard to scoop? Soften it in a flash by heating it in the microwave on Low for about 20 seconds.
