Chocolate Mint Sorbet Pie (Dessert Ice Cream Recipes)
CHOCOLATE-MINT SORBET PIE Sent in by recipe researchers extraordinaire, Sue B. You could absolutely substitute chocolate ice cream if you can't find the sorbet mentioned in the recipe. This sounds SO great!
INGREDIENTS: 1 pint chocolate sorbet softened, 12 miniature peppermint patties (about 5 ounces) chilled and coarsely chopped, 1 prepared crumb crust, 3/4 cup heavy cream chilled, 6 tbsp's. confectioners' sugar, 1/8 tsp. pure peppermint extract.
DIRECTIONS: Combine the sorbet and peppermint patties in a large mixing bowl and mash the mixture with the back of a wooden spoon until the peppermint patties and sorbet are well combined. Turn the sorbet mixture into the prepared crust and smooth it with the back of a spoon. Place the pie in the freezer while yu continue with the recipe. Combine the heavy cream, confectioners' sugar and peppermint extract in a medium-size mixing bowl and using an electric mixer, beat the cream until it holds soft peaks. Remove the pie from the freezer and spread the whipped cream over the top with a rubber spatula. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and freeze it until the filling is completely set, at least 3 hours and up to 1 week.MAKES: One 9-inch pie, 6 to 8 servings.
