Easy and sooo yummy. Got this recipe when I worked at Knott's Berry Farm. "Cooking" time is chilling time. Shortbread cookie crumbs should total the 1 1/2 cup, its hard to get the recipe to write up that way. Also note the divided use of the jam.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups shortbread cookies, crushed into crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 1 cup boysenberry jam, divided use (Knott's Berry Farm seedless)
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 12 cup chocolate chips, melted
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 13 cup almonds, toasted


  1. Combine crumbs and butter.
  2. Press into 9 inch pie pan.
  3. Blend together (only) 1/4 cup jam, cream cheese and melted chocolate.
  4. Spread into bottom and up the sides of the crust.
  5. Stir together ice cream and (only) 1/4 cup jam.
  6. Spoon into pie to fill.
  7. Place in freezer for 4 hours or until ice cream is firm.
  8. Top with remaining jam and toasted almonds.

Knott's Berry Farm was THE PLACE to go when my kids were small & the 'farm' itself still had no entrance fee ~ And, the boysenberry jam, OUTSTANDING, as is this GREAT ICE CREAM PIE! This is so easy to prepare & the chocolate & toasted almonds make for wonderful additions! Will certainly make this again at times over the coming warmer months!
