How ya feelin'? HOT HOT HOT!

So we have been having this incredibly hot weather here in Rhode Island... Feel like was 107 degrees today! Yowza! So on Sunday I wanted to make a dessert but was avoiding turing the oven on at all costs.

I remembered seeing something on the back of the Oreo pie shell regarding an Oreo ice cream pie but alas, I tossed the recipe. Thank goodness for Google & cooks.com! I found a comparable recipe and made a few adaptations (omitted the nuts & added some Oreo pieces to the ice cream filling). This pie is quick, easy, and so refreshing!

1 pkg. Oreo cookies (lg.)
5 tbsp. melted butter
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
1/2 tbsp. vanilla
1 (13 oz.) container Cool Whip

Crush Oreo cookies with rolling pin and reserve 1 cup of crushed crumbs. Combine remaining crumbs with melted butter and press into a greased 9 by 13 inch pan. Combine ice cream, vanilla, 1/2 of Cool Whip, and reserved Oreo crumbs. Place on top of crust and freeze until firm. After frozen, place a collop of cool whip on top and drizzle chocolate syrup.
