Mud Pie

Here is another one of my ready to go summer recipes. It's really just dressing up ice cream.
This can also be made in a spring form pan. You may have to adjust the amount of crumbs and ice cream depending on the size of your pan.

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups chocolate Oreo crumbs
  • 2 liters coffee ice cream
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • purchased hot fudge sauce (I like Smuckers brand)
  • sliced almonds (optional)
Method:
  1. Melt butter in a deep dish pie plate.
  2. Add crumbs and mix, pressing to form a crust.
  3. Allow ice cream to sit out for 5-10 minutes to make it easier to scoop, then mound the Oreo shell with all the ice cream.
  4. Press with the back of a spoon to pack ice cream into the shell and smooth the top.
  5. Cover well and freeze.
  6. When ready to serve, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla until thick.
  7. Serve pie with a mound of freshly whipped cream, hot fudge sauce, and almonds.

  2. Hi! I also made cookies to celebrate Canada Day . . . along with coffee in my Tim's coffee mug. Your photo of a northern sky and a proud flag stretched out in the wind is heart-warming. Thank you!

  4. kathy, this mud pie looks fantastic! I like your recipe, because it is simplier than mine. As I get older, I realize that simplier, means more time with family and friends. I usually don't buy coffee ice cream, but rather soften 2 litres of vanilla and mix with 4 tsp. instant coffee that has been disolved in a wee bit of hot water. I mix that in my stand-mixer. Have a great summer day!

  5. That looks wonderful! You could use any icecream in it and it you would like. I would probably use an Oreo one because the kids would like that better.

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe with us!


    Happy 4th of July!

  8. On a food program the other day, they used store bought icecream sadwiches for the outer layer. Store bought or home made, I think both would be great.

  11. I love Mud Pie. This looks like a good recipe. The recipe I use has the most amazing homemade chocolate sauce - I like to eat it right out of the pot! However, given time constraints, I just may have to try this.
