This was a hit with my family! I made it for my cake-hating daughter's birthday and she (and everyone else) gave it a huge thumbs up! I made this exactly the way Laurie wrote it except that I used chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream - my daughter's favorite. Wonderful! Daughter Laura says "Ice Cream Pie RULES" Thanks Laurie!
