Mudslide Pie

Mudslide pie is so easy and really delicious!!!

This recipe is adapted from the Betty Crocker website.


Mudslide Pie
26 Oreo cookies, divided
1/4 C butter, melted
6 C coffee ice cream, softened (don't skimp! buy the good stuff!)
3 TBLS Kaluha
3 TBLS Bailey's Irish Cream
Caramel sauce, for garnish
Whipped cream, for garnish

Put 20 Oreos into the food processor and pulse until you have fine crumbs.
Add melted butter and process until combined.
Press cookie crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a ungreased 9in pie plate.
Freeze for 15 minutes.
Mix softened ice cream with Kaluha and Bailey's.
Spread ice cream mixture into pie crust. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
Remove pie from freezer 15 minutes prior to serving. Crush remaining 6 cookies in food processor. Serve Mudslide Pie topped with whipped cream, a drizzle of caramel and a sprinkle of cookie crumbs.


This is what you need.

Don't skimp on cheap ice cream. You want creamy, delicious, strongly flavored coffee ice cream. If I'm not making it myself, I always choose Starbucks Coffee Ice Cream. It's spendy for those little containers, but SO worth it!!

Crush the cookies in the food processor then mix in the melted butter.

That little bottle of Bailey's isn't in the food processor. It's on the counter behind it.

Anyway, then press the buttery cookie crumbs into a glass pie plate.

Anyone remember when I asked Santa for a nice red pie plate??

See... he reads my blog. =)

Freeze that for 15 minutes.

Now mix up the ice cream and booze.

Mmmm... I licked all the lids before I threw them out.

6 cups of coffee ice cream

If you try stirring it up a bit first, it's easier to mix in the alcohol.


Fast forward 15 minutes.

Spoon your ice cream mixture into the cookie crumb crust.

Oh, look at that spoon, all covered with frozen mudslide... I should definitely lick that so it doesn't get the sink messy!

Cover with plastic wrap.

I didn't have plastic wrap. I only had plastic bags that go inside my heated pedicure booties. So I cut one open and used that.

But it wasn't very clingy, so I covered it with foil too.

Then into the freezer next to the Trader Jose's Chicken & Cheese Tamales overnight.

It doesn't have to be overnight, but it should be for at least 6 hours. And it doesn't have to be next to Trader Jose's Tamales either.

Take it out of the freezer about 10 - 15 minutes before you're ready to serve it.

Top slices with whipped cream, caramel sauce and a sprinkle of cookie crumbs.

This was SO good!! Perfect on a hot summer day. But really a yummy treat any time!

Try this!! It's delicious!!

This is perfect! And it's still hot enough out to justify a good ice cream pie. Nice one! :)
