Sunflower Ice Cream Pie

 Sunflower Ice Cream Pie
To create this special dessert, I combined all my favorite ice cream toppings—Oreo cookies, chocolate chips, caramel and nuts. The sunflower theme inspired the caramel "petals" on top. This pie's become a new standby at our house. —Holly Joyce Jackson, Minnesota
