Apple Pie a la Mode Recipe

Apple Pie a la Mode Recipe

Here is a family favorite that combines apple pie filling and butter pecan ice cream with caramel topping and chopped nuts. I created it when trying to think up a rich dessert to complete a dinner party menu.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + freezing YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 can (21 ounces) apple pie filling
  • 1 graham cracker crust (9 inches)
  • 2 cups butter pecan ice cream, softened if necessary
  • 1 jar (12 ounces) hot caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

  • 1. Spread half of the pie filling over crust. Top with half of the ice cream; freeze 30 minutes. Drizzle with half of the caramel topping; layer with remaining pie filling. Freeze 30 minutes. Scoop remaining ice cream over top. Freeze, covered, until firm.
  • 2. Remove from freezer 30 minutes before serving. In a microwave, warm remaining caramel topping. Serve pie with warm caramel topping; sprinkle with pecans. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, spread in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 5-10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Or, spread in a dry nonstick skillet and heat over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
