What's Cookin' Wednesday: Ice Cream Pie Yum!!

This is a recipe our mom made growing up. Until recently we hadn't really made it, but have rediscovered how delicious and easy it is!!

1/4 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup white corn syrup

2 cups honey nut corn flakes (we can only find plain honey corn flakes now)

1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened

Chocolate ice cream topping

Chopped nuts

Melt peanut butter and corn syrup together and mix into corn flakes. Press mixture into the bottom of a greased 9" pie plate. Spread ice cream over mixture and freeze. Remove from freezer about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with chocolate topping and nuts over slices. If making a 9"x13" pan double the recipe.

Hints and tips from us: I made the double batch and used half chocolate ice cream and half vanilla and the chocolate was a huge hit. So you can use whatever kind of ice cream you want to. I also served mine with butterscotch, chocolate, and carmel. Yum!! Loved it with slivered almonds!! For the ice cream soften it for about 10 or 15 minutes and put it in a bowl and make sure you can stir it. Then stir it and spread over crust.
