First layer: Half of the cookie crumbs, half of the caramel sauce and then all of the ice cream. I used a caramel ice cream by Mayfield. It had chunks of caramel/chocolate bits in a vanilla base. =)
It then gets topped with the other half of the caramel sauce before getting put back into the freezer to harden up. Pop off the springform pan and serve. Don’t worry about it melting, it won’t last long!
1 1/3 Cup all purpose flour
2/3 Cup quick cooking oats
2/3 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
2/3 Cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2/3 Cup butter, melted
1 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened (or your choice)
- Combine first 4 ingredients, and stir in melted butter; press mixture firmly into a lightly greased 15 x 10 x 1″ jelly roll pan.
- Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned; remove cookie to wire rack. Cool and crumble.
- Combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter, and evaporated milk in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly; boil 3 minutes. Cool caramel sauce.
- Sprinkle half of crumbs into bottom of lightly greased 10 inch springform pan. I think the next time I make this I will cover the bottom of the pan with waxed paper, then spray it with cooking spray before adding the cookie crumbs. Drizzle with half of caramel sauce. Spread remaining caramel sauce; sprinkle with remaining crumbs.
- Cover and freeze until firm. Yield: 12 servings
I was in the mood for new recipes this past week and went to my favorite and most reliable source – my old Southern Living cookbooks. You just can’t go wrong with their recipes!
Sunday dinner was a favorite menu for our family and one I’ve shared here, but with an addition of a new side dish – the one from SL.
This Pineapple-Almond slaw was really good. What a yummy addition to a summer meal! The sweet pineapple is a great combination with the slaw. I had purchased a fresh pineapple from Sam’s and used it instead of the canned pineapple.
2/3 Cup sour cream
2/3 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tbl lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp salt
5 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
1 15 oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 (2 oz) package slivered almonds, toasted
Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Combine cabbage and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; add sour cream mixture; tossing well. cover and chill thoroughly. Yield 8 to 10 servings.
