Kept In Stitches

Confessions of a fabric hoarder


With the recent burst of heat I’m thinking of nothing but Mom’s ice cream pie. And making it harder for the kidnappers is just an added bonus.

“A mud pie with a peanuty twist.


      1 (20 ounce) package chocolate sandwich cookies
      1/2 cup margarine, melted
      1 1/2 cups chopped Spanish peanuts
      1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
      2 cups confectioners’ sugar
      1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
      2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
      1/2 cup margarine
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract


      Crush all but 10 of the cookies. Combine crushed cookies in large bowl with melted margarine and peanuts. Press mixture into a 9×13 inch baking dish and freeze until cold.

Spread softened ice cream over cold crust and freeze until set.

Combine confectioners’ sugar, evaporated milk, chocolate chips, 1/2 cup margarine and vanilla in large saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 7 minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat and cool completely; pour mixture over ice cream and freeze until set.

Crush the last 10 cookies (if you haven’t eaten them yet) and sprinkle over top of pie.

    It works! A kidnapper came to my door the other day. He looked me up and down, shook his head hopelessly, and turned away.
