Food Thursday: Turtle Ice Cream Pie

I love ice cream all year round but it tastes especially good now at the height of summer. It’s almost as if when the sweet corn is good, ice cream is also in season. Here’s a fun and yummy way to make ice cream seem like a fancy dessert. Now I need to invite some people over or something so I have an excuse to make it.

Turtle Ice Cream Pie
1 prepared chocolate graham cracker crust
4 cups of vanilla ice cream, softened
1/3 cup caramel ice cream syrup, plus more at the end
1/4 cup chopped pecans

1. Put softened ice cream in a bowl and mix with a hand mixer for a few minutes to make it all smooth. Spread half of it in the crust, and put the other half in the fridge for later.

2. Spread the 1/3 cup caramel syrup on top of the ice cream and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to set.

3. Take it out of the freezer and put the rest of the ice cream on as a top layer. Sprinkle the pecans on top and drizzle with caramel syrup.

Note: If you’re a big fan of pecans, double the amount and put half in the middle layer with the 1/3 cup caramel syrup.
