This is the ultimate ice cream pie with an oreo cookie crust, a hot fudge layer and cherry pie topping!!
We decided to make not just a simple ice cream pie but we would totally go overboard and include four layers for our pie. A kinda ice cream pie fashioned after a hot fudge sundae!
Store bought ice cream can be used but it is easy to make home-made ice cream and no worries about the ice cream melting in this heat before you get home from the market.
We finished this masterpiece with canned cherry pie filling as a topping!
