S'mores Ice Cream Pie: National Ice Cream Pie Day

Today is National Ice Cream Pie Day. Frozen chocolate ice cream is always great, but this recipe, my favorite by far for S'mores Ice Cream Pie, uses Rocky Road ice-cream. I originally found this recipe on the Taste of Home website. Last week I had a Round-up of S'mores recipes for National S'mores Day, but I forgot to include this one. I've tried other S'mores Ice Cream Pie Recipes, but this is really the best one! It's easy and delicious.

S'mores Ice Cream Pie

Ingredients
2/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons sweet butter, melted
2-1/2 cups rocky road ice cream, softened
2/3 cup marshmallow creme
3/4 cup miniature marshmallows

Directions
1. In a small bowl, combine cracker crumbs and sugar; stir in butter. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a 7-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325° for 7-9 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
2. Carefully spread ice cream into crust; freeze until firm. Spread marshmallow creme over ice cream. Top with marshmallows; gently press into creme. Cover and freeze for 4 hours or overnight.
3. Just before serving, use a mini-torch and flash-burn a bit--or broil 6 in. from the heat for 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown.

I have a sister in law, who, if she is holding an iPad in her hand, doing just that. I believe she will go to Fentons in Oakland to celebrate this important day!
