Peanut butter ice cream pie
I love to try out new recipes no matter if they are ones I created in my head, ones I found on-line or in a cookbook. Over the years, I have tried recipes from a lot of chefs, one who seems to match my cooking style is Rachael Ray. As a mother, you've got to appreciate the concept of a 30 Minute Meal! Rachael Ray often says that her recipes are just methods. She encourages her viewers to take her recipes and make them their own. I "Lori-ize" almost everything I cook, tailoring the recipe to my families taste. I decided to combine these two ideas and what you see here is the result. Each week I'll create a meal based on a recipe and let you know what we thought. I will give you the original recipe and let you know how I "Lori-ized" it. Hope you enjoy Tasty Tuesday!
A few weeks ago I was poking around The Sweet Life's blog and found a recipe for peanut butter ice cream. I bookmarked it and decided there would be a time when I needed a sweet treat. Richard was a bit hesitant so it hung around for a while. I then had to make a desert for my in-laws' visit and a football game. So I pulled it out.
I made a few alterations. I added mini chocolate chips, used crunchy peanut butter and... I made it a pie. To make ice cream pie, just make soft ice cream, stuff it into a cookie crumb crust, freeze and eat.
I forgot to take a picture before we ate the pie
This was very yummy! Colby loved the ice cream and still talks about it. Richard and I enjoyed it many days to come. Oh and although Richard was hesitant of it begin with he really enjoyed the ice cream.
Next time, I would make homemade hot fudge to go with it. Yes it was that good. I think I may also add a bit more peanut butter to it to give it more of the peanut flavor.
