Ice Cream Pies

I am not one to follow a recipe but I do read cookbooks..
yes I am weird that way and it can come in handy sometimes with fabulous rewards.

The Ice Cream Pie Story   

I needed to bring dessert to my sons preschool graduation and well I forgot until the children bounded in from school at 3:45 and we needed to be at the graduation at 530 AHHHH..panic set in so we ran to the store with me throwing ingredients into the cart as fast as the 4 of us could go ran home did the paper route and made these :(I wish I would have thought of taking pictures of them before they were cut into but it wasn't until the rave reviews started coming in that I thought I should share them)

Oh So Berry

You Need:
Graham Cracker Crust
Vanilla Ice Cream
Asst Berries washed and cut if needed
Almond extract
1/2 tub large cool whip

To Make:

Thaw ice cream until soft and then scoop until desired amount into pie shell.
Top with berries and place in freezer
Crush a hand full of raspberries(I was in a hurry and used my hands) add 1/2 container of cool whip and some almond extract and whisk together.  Top pie with cool whip mixture and place some berries on top.

*This for me was a fast and furious process.  I put all the ice cream in the shells with the bottom layer ingredients and then put them in the freezeer then I made all the cool whip toppings and added those.  So the length of time they were in the freezer varied and as you can see in the picture the berry one I made last and it melted right away. So I would say the amount of time for them to be in the freezer is at least 30 minutes for each step they go into the freezer.
