Ice Cream Pie

OK, so this isn't a recipe, exactly. It's more of an idea, for when you want a festive party dessert but don't really have the time to make one.

First, you buy a graham cracker pie shell.

Next you slice up two bananas, on the diagonal, and overlap them around the edge of the pie shell.

Then you scoop out three of your favorite kinds of ice cream (you will use about a half-pint of each). Pile them into the pie shell. If you have a melon baller or a small ice cream scoop, you can use that to fill in the gaps between the larger scoops. Top with a cherry, stick in the freezer for at least an hour, then serve later in slices, along with chocolate sauce.

Voila! Instant party!

Oooh.. I like this, Lynn. It's a super easy, fun, pretty little idea for a dinner party or even just for the fam who likes ice cream (which my hubby does). He really likes icec ream cake but this is an easier way to do that. I'll use it for sure!
