Peanut Butter and Jelly Pie 600x450 Peanut Butter and Jelly Ice Cream Pie

Growing up, I remember watching an ice cream cake commercial with a weird shaped character that had a high-pitched voice going on and on about how great ice cream cake was. I used to beg my parents to get me that cake, but for someone reason they thought making me a cake out of Bisquick with dollops of raspberry jam and mini mountains of powdered sugar (mom used a fork to sift) was just as enticing to a 7 year old.

Years later, I now realize why my parents wouldn’t get me that cake. You know how you watch a movie that you loved as kid, but now you’re an adult and you actually get it and it seems like a completely different movie? Well the same goes for this cake. Besides the fact that it was expensive, the cake was called Cookie Puss and his friend’s name was Cookie O’Puss. See where this is going? It gets better, they both had this cone shaped nose that looked like a gigantic schlong. Oh my poor parents, they’ve been in America a few short years and had to make important decisions like to pay the electricity bill, buy clothes for the kids and whether or not to buy a cake that looks like a gigantic penis and it’s surname is Puss.

By the time I turned 16 I’d had enough. I wanted a non-pornographic ice cream cake that I could enjoy without feeling dirty or get sent to hell for eating it.

Recipe: Peanut Butter And Jelly Ice Cream Pie

Ingredients

  • 1 Pint premium Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1/2 Jar of Peanut Butter (creamy)
  • 1/4 Cup Raspberry Jam
  • 1 Ready-made Graham Cracker Crust

Instructions

  1. Put the peanut butter in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. It should come out like thick syrup. Pour the melted peanut butter in the ready-made crust and freeze for 30 minutes. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it rest at room temperature while the peanut butter is hardening. After 30 minutes, take the crust of the freezer and gently spoon the ice cream onto the peanut butter. If the ice cream is too hard, microwave it for 10 seconds. Run a spoon under hot water for a few seconds and use the back of it to smooth out the ice cream. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Next, add the raspberry jam and cover the entire top (use more if you need). It’s very important that you cover all the ice cream with the jam. This way, it seals the ice cream and it won’t discolor. Put in the freezer for at least and hour and take out 15 minutes before serving.

Number of servings (yield): 8

Meal type: dessert

    So – I decided to pair this with a Roasted Raspberry Chipotle Pork Loin dish for Valentine’s Day.

    Thanks, My Social Chef! It was deliciious. I did, however, make the mistake of using soy vanilla ice cream which is flavored with fruit. The lemonish taste did not go very well with the peanut butter and raspberry preserves. I’ll have to give it a whirl again with plain dairy ice cream.

    As well, I’d venture to reduce the amount of peanut butter used – maybe go for 1/4 of the jar instead of 1/2.

    Thanks again!
