Pecan Pie Swirl Ice Cream Pie 

Ingredients: – 1 pre-made graham cracker pie crust – 1 pint of vanilla ice cream – 1 cup of chopped pecan – 1/2 cup of brown sugar

– 1/4 cup of corn syrup – 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter – 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract – Pinch of salt

Instructions: 1. Prepare the Pecan Pie Swirl:In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth.

– Stir in the chopped pecans and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes until the mixture thickens slightly. – Remove from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.

Prepare the Ice Cream: – Take the vanilla ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften slightly at room temperature for about 5-10 minutes. – Once softened, transfer the ice cream to a mixing bowl and stir it until smooth.

Assembly: – Spread a layer of the softened ice cream evenly into the bottom of the graham cracker pie crust.

– Spoon the pecan pie swirl mixture over the ice cream layer, spreading it evenly. – Top with another layer of the softened ice cream, smoothing it out with a spatula. – Optionally, you can sprinkle some additional chopped pecans on top for garnish.

Serving: – Remove the pie from the freezer about 5-10 minutes before serving to allow it to soften slightly for easier slicing. – Slice and serve chilled, optionally drizzling with caramel sauce or topping with whipped cream.
