Ice Cream Pie Directions

You can either make this pie right after you get home from the grocery store or place the ice cream on the counter for about 15-20 minutes to thaw so it’s easily scooped into the crust.  
Smooth the softened ice cream into the pie crust.
After the ice cream layer is complete, you can mix 4-6 drops of food coloring in with the whipped topping.  You can add more food coloring for a deeper color!
After, you mix the whipped cream and food coloring, scoop the whipped cream onto the ice cream, and smooth to cover.
You can add a garnish like Andes’ mints or mini chocolate chips if you would like. 
Place it back in the freezer to harden for about an hour and then wrap it in tin foil until you are ready to enjoy it.
For easier slicing, warm your knife under hot water before cutting into the pie.
