Ingredients

  • 5 ounces amaretti cookies
  • 2 pints chocolate ice cream
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse cookies until crumbs form (3 cups). Remove 3/4 cup crumbs; spread evenly in bottom of prepared pan (see below).

  2. Add ice cream to crumbs in processor; puree until smooth and combined. Scrape into pan, without disturbing crust; smooth top. Place in freezer (keep level) until solid, 3 hours.

  3. In a small saucepan, heat heavy cream over high heat until steaming. Remove from heat; whisk in chocolate chips until melted and combined. Let stand until cool but pourable, 5 minutes. Pour over pie; spread to cover top. Cover with plastic wrap; return to freezer until ready to serve, up to 3 days. Before serving, let stand at room temperature, 10 minutes. Release sides of pan. Slice pie with a knife that's been heated under hot water.

Cook's Notes

To prepare the pan: Line the sides of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper, using cooking spray to help paper stick to pan.
