My husband is positively addicted to candy cane ice cream. The very second the first Christmas carol plays in our house he starts rooting through the freezer asking if I’ve made any yet. No joke! Sometimes I make it and sometimes I buy it, but, either way, it is constantly a staple in our freezer. To take his favorite Christmas treat up a notch my daughter and I decided to make a frozen pie, much like our favorite summer treat. We used some Pillsbury sugar cookie dough to make a great crust, it was so easy!
Frozen Candy Cane Ice Cream Pie
1 tube Pillsbury sugar cookie dough
1 pint candy cane ice cream
Crushed candy canes for garnish
1. Press the cookie dough into the bottom and up the sides a 10″ pie plate and bake it at 350F for about 20 minutes, or until lightly golden. The dough will puff up and then settle back down as it bakes.
2. Allow the dough to cool completely before proceeding.
3. Allow the ice cream to soften slightly before pressing it into the baked pie crust. Scatter the crushed candy canes on top as a garnish and refreeze. Slice and serve once frozen.
