Cookie Ice Cream Pie is fun to make with two already prepared ingredients—ice cream and cookies. Because you use your freezer not your oven, preparing this crunchy, creamy treat on warm days won't heat up your kitchen. Make it ahead and serve without fuss to company or kids. —Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board, Madison, Wisconsin
I received this super-easy recipe from a friend. It takes just minutes to combine the bananas, strawberries and pineapple with a few other ingredients before popping everything in the freezer. I've been told the luscious mixture tastes even better than ice cream.
You'll love the sunny color and fruity flavor of this light dessert. If you can't find mangoes, substitute fresh peaches. To peal peaches, drop them into boiling water for a few seconds. Then you can easily slip the skins right off.
Says Mary Ann Dell of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania: “I can’t count the times I’ve made this wonderful dessert. It’s a favorite at our summer barbecues. People think you really fussed, but it couldn’t be easier—and there are never any leftovers!”
Each year, our family enjoys a dessert that's much more fun than the typical pies and cakes. With refreshing ice cream chock-full of holiday ingredients like nuts, cherries and candies, these treats are a delightful end to a perfect meal.

"My grandmother passed down this ice cream recipe years ago," recalls Jo Snyder of South Bend, Indiana. "Our kids loved it when I made it into Popsicles. Now our grandchildren enjoy the frozen treats when they visit...the older ones can assemble them on their own."
Guests will “ooh” and “aah” when you bring in this fabulous ice-cream torte ringed with chocolaty Almond Joy bars. But this is one summer showstopper our Test Kitchen created with busy hostesses in mind. It’s super easy, feeds a crowd and can be made days ahead for convenience.
I received this wonderful recipe many years ago from a friend. The creamy custard-style ice cream has a mild cherry flavor with a fun oat crunch. It takes some time to make, but it's worth the extra effort!
