Ice cream pie

If I reminiscence back to dinner at my Grandparent's house, it always brings up lasagna, followed by ice cream pie.  It is such a simple recipe that I am surprised every time I have it just how tasty it it.  Plus, as a bonus, you make it the day before you serve it, so it is all ready to go when you need it.

Nut choppers:


1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
3 cups corn flakes
1 cup coconut flakes
1 quart vanilla ice cream, slightly softened

Add melted butter to brown sugar in a large bowl.  Add corn flake, coconut and pecans and mix well.

Pack about 3/4 of the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of a 10" pie plate.

Spoon in the ice cream.

Sprinkle remaining crumbies on the top, pressing into the ice cream. 

Cover and keep in the fridge several hours, or overnight.
