Black Forest Freezer Pie Recipe

A delightful dessert is never far off when you have this layered ice cream pie in the freezer. For variety, I sometimes use strawberry pie filling and a chocolate crust. —Angie Helms, Pontotoc, Mississippi
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + freezing YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 pint chocolate or vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 1 extra-servings-size graham cracker crust (9 ounces)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 can (21 ounces) cherry pie filling, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate syrup


  • 1. Spoon ice cream into pie crust; cover and freeze 15 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Set aside 1-1/2 cups for garnish.
  • 3. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over ice cream. Using the back of a spoon, make an 8-in.-diameter well in the center of the pie for pie filling (do not add filling). Pipe reserved cream cheese mixture around pie.
  • 4. Cover and freeze 3-4 hours or until firm. May be frozen up to 2 months. Just before serving, spoon pie filling into the well; drizzle with chocolate syrup. Serve immediately. Yield: 6-8 servings.
