This is the quickest, simplest, and chicest ice cream dessert in my summer deserts recipe file. I've made mint and chocolate, double-vanilla, and double-chocolate versions so far. All have been anticipated with mouths watering and compliments given afterwards. I bake pies and tarts and this is one of the most perfect recipes from "Everyday Food". This (2011) summer will be an orange-vanilla version with creamsicle Oreos and vanilla ice cream. Memorial Day 2012 will feature this version.
Loved this recipe for minimal ingredients and fuss; delicious too. However I thought the whole cookies were too hard to crack with a fork after they were frozen. I'd make this again, omitting the whole cookies layer on the bottom.
I made this dessert last night and it couldn't have been easier. I love the idea of adding an extra layer of cookies on top of the crust -- it helped to keep the ice cream from gathering bits of the crust when spreading it.
