Blackberry Ice Cream Pie

My sister asked me to make a little sumthin' sumthin' for Easter and I had the perfect recipe. Over a year ago when I was reading the archives of Love Taza (I went through quite a stage when I would read her blog from the beginning to end like a novel. Honestly, I feel like she is my bestie. #bffs) I came across this recipe. Obviously I pinned it and had all of the best intentions to try it aaannnd never did. Wah Wah. Until now. Wahoo!!

Not only is it absolutely delicious, it's freaking easy! And the crust! I could eat the crust by itself. No guilt. Ok, maybe a little guilt, but just wait until you try it. AND it's a little girl's dream it's so pretty!

Blackberry Ice Cream Pie
Adapted from this recipe.
Makes 2 pies

Ingredients for pie:
1 package of blackberry jello
1 tub of vanilla ice cream (1.5 qts)
Fresh berries for garnish

Ingredients for crust:
16 graham crackers
12 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp sugar

Prepare crust:
1. Crush graham crackers and mix with sugar and butter.
2. Press into bottoms and sides of 2 pans and chill in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes.
***I used one spring-form pan (pictured above) and one pie pan. It turns out well in the pie pan too, but let's face it, spring-form is the coolest and looks better in photos. Bam.

Prepare pie:
1. Set out ice cream to soften a bit.
2. In a large glass bowl add 2 cups of boiling water to your package of jello and stir until dissolved.
3. Stir ice cream into the jello mixture until evenly incorporated.
4. Let mixture cool a bit then pour ice cream mixture into prepared pie crusts.
5. Put pies in the freezer to chill for at least two hours.
6. Serve with fresh berries. (This is not optional--it's just too pretty!)

Yummy yummy!!
