Cookies and cream ice cream pie recipes turn up at many restaurants, but it often tastes stale and freezer burned. To make this pie taste fresh, we used crushed sugar cones to make the crust. The flavor was a better match with the ice cream than the more conventional graham cracker crust. Grinding the cones in a food processor ensured that our Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Pie contained evenly crushed crumbs. Instead of using prepared cookies-and-cream ice cream, we made our own by adding our favorite crushed cookies to softened ice cream. Packing the ice cream and cookie mixture tightly into the crust and freezing it firm made sure the pie slices cleanly.

Serves 6 to 8

Ice cream pies are more fun (and taste great) when made with a sugar cone (rather than a conventional graham cracker) crust. Adding your own chopped cookies to ice cream allows you to customize the flavor combination. Try oreos with mint chip ice cream or gingersnaps with peach ice cream.
