WHOLLY WHOLESOME ICE CREAM PIE RECIPE

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Wholly Wholesome Traditional Organic Pie Shell
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, plus extra for serving 
  • 4 peanut butter cups, roughly chopped 
  • ½ cup peanuts

 

Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half 
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter 
  • Pinch of salt 
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla 

 

Directions:

 

  • Cook the pie crust according to the directions on the package, until golden brown. Let it cool.
  • Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow to soften slightly. Mix in the pecans and peanuts and pour the ice cream mixture into the crust. Cover with foil and freeze until very hard, about 1 to 2 hours.
  • For the caramel sauce, mix the brown sugar, half-and-half, butter and salt in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, while whisking gently, until thicker, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the vanilla and cook another minute to thicken further. Pour the sauce into a jar and refrigerate until cold.
  • To serve, cut slices of the pie and serve on individual plates with cold caramel sauce spooned over the top and sprinkled with pecans. Serve with extra caramel sauce on the side.
