Butter Brickle Ice Cream Pie

This butter brickle ice cream pie is my husband’s absolute favorite summertime dessert. I often serve it to company in warm-weather months. Everyone loves the rich butter-pecan flavor. —Brenda Jackson, Garden City, Kansas

    This pie was delicious and very easy to make! My husband and I loved the sauce and we decided we'd prefer to save a few calories by not having the crust or the extra toffee bits in the middle and serve it over ice cream like a sundae. The sauce is just amazing! It was tough to keep from just eating it with a spoon!

    My grandson took one bit of this and announced that this was the best pie ever! Everyone gave it a thumbs-up. To make it even better, it is an easy one to make.

    This dessert was a huge hit after our Sunday dinner. 16 year-old son begged me to make it again!

    The whole family loved it. Next time I think i will make in a rectangular pan instead of the pie plate. Easier to cut and the sauce will stay on better if the pieces are flat squares. Also will probably mix in the toffee pieces into the ice cream.

    Very easy for summer-no oven or stove for a great dessert. The sauce is excellent-great with plain ice cream too. Overall, a nice combination of flavors.
