Tasty Tuesday and Tin Roof Ice Cream Pie

Hi friends! It’s another Tasty Tuesday and this week it’s a Tin Roof Ice Cream Pie!

I hadn’t done a dessert for awhile, so I thought I would try another ice cream pie! I was inspired by the Tin Roof Sundae my dad ordered when we all went out for ice cream a few weeks ago. It had vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, salty peanuts, and whipped cream. So, I thought I would make a variation of it I could serve up in a pie. This is my kind of assignment! So without further ado, let’s begin!


  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • cocktail peanuts (about 1 cup)
  • caramel ice cream topping
  • hot fudge ice cream topping
  • chocolate syrup
  • 1 small tub of Cool Whip

Preheat the oven to 350°

Put 20 Oreos in a large ziplock bag.

Crush the Oreos. I used a rolling pin to crush them. But you can crush them pretty well with your hands.

Melt your 1/2 stick of butter in a small to medium size skillet.

Add the crushed cookie crumbs.

Gently toss the cookies in the butter until all the crumbs are coated and glossy from the butter.

Take a 9″ pie pan, spray with cooking spray, and add your cookie crumbs.

Take a fork or spoon and gently move the cookie pieces, pressing them in place to form a crust. Bake in the oven for about 6 minutes. This smells so heavenly!

When you take it out of the oven, add a drizzled on layer of hot fudge. I microwave the jar for no more than 30 seconds. It gets hot fast so be careful. Stir the hot fudge and drizzle that layer on.

Now add a sprinkling of salted peanuts.

Freeze for about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, add about 3 cups of softened ice cream.

Pour in a drizzling manner about 1/3 cup of caramel sauce.

Stir slightly, and then spoon into the chilled pie shell.

Carefully spread the ice cream evenly in the pie tin. Drizzle more fudge on top.

Now add a layer of peanuts.

Freeze for about an hour. Add a layer of Cool Whip.

Drizzle on more toppings (not hot) caramel, chocolate syrup, and peanuts.

And voila! You are ready to serve!

I used a warm knife (honestly it just came out of the dishwasher, hah!) But you could run it under warm water. The trick is to be sure you cut all the way through the cookie crust.

Doesn’t that look luscious?


See the layers in this side shot? It’s even better to taste them!

You can only admire it so long… and then you better eat fast!

I’m melting!

It really is so much fun to make a dessert treat like this! You have the ice cold creamy ice cream with swirls of caramel. You have the rich chocolate fudge and salty peanuts! And it all sits on top of a rock solid decadent Oreo cookie crust! My husband says that is his favorite part! When you start with a solid foundation, you are bound to be a success!

Sometimes we are the solid foundation others put their trust in. Sometimes it is your confidence, your smile, your strong shoulder, and your kindness and compassion that helps someone get through a tough place in their life. Sometimes you are the “tough cookie” the rest of the pie stands upon. If that is you today, bless you! And sometimes we may be the one needing to lean on someone else. Bless those in our lives we can go to!

Building anything on something solid is always the best idea! From ice cream pies, to relationships and faith, you never go wrong with a firm foundation!

I think I need just a sliver more!

Have a fantastic week, my friend!

I’ll be back Friday for another post!

Love Always,

  2. First, what am amazing sounding and looking desert! It has everything I would want!!! I loved your analogy of the cookie foundation! I’ve been feeling a bit down on myself lately, but this made me remember that I can be (and often am) the solid foundation that others put their trust in – and that makes me feel better! So, thanks for a great desert and for reminding me of the importance of the “tough cookie foundation.” : )
