Butter-Pecan Pie

To soften ice cream quickly, cut it into chunks, and place in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in 10-second intervals, stirring between each, until it can be spread easily

  • prep: 30 mins
    total time: 7 hours 30 mins
  • servings: 8




  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 pints butter-pecan ice cream, softened


  1. Step 1

    In a food processor, finely grind 1/2 cup pecans with the sugar. Add flour and butter; process until moist clumps form. With wet fingers, press crust evenly into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Freeze until firm, about 20 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  2. Step 2

    With a fork, prick bottom of crust all over. Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes (if crust puffs up, gently press down with the back of a spoon). Let cool completely.

  3. Step 3

    Spread ice cream evenly in cooled crust. Chop remaining 1/2 cup pecans; sprinkle on top. Freeze, covered loosely with plastic wrap, until firm, at least 6 hours and up to overnight.
