Neapolitan Ice Cream Pie
2 cups flaked coconut
3 tablespoons melted butter
1 pint vanilla ice cream
1/2 cup dairy sour cream
1/4 cup finely chopped toasted almonds
1/8 cup rum
1 pint chocolate ice cream
1 pint strawberry ice cream
1 (1 ounce) square semisweet chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch pie plate.
Coconut Pie Crust: Combine coconut and butter; press on bottom and sides of
prepared pie plate. Bake for 25 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool;
chill before filling.
In cold mixing bowl, stir vanilla ice cream to soften; add sour cream, nuts and
rum. (If mixture becomes too soft, return to freezer until nearly firm.) Spread
half the mixture in each pie shell.
Using small or medium ice cream scoop, shape the chocolate and strawberry ice
cream into balls; arrange atop vanilla layer in pie shell. Cover and freeze.
Drizzle with melted chocolate; top with additional toasted
almonds, if desired.
For easy serving, dip bottom of each pie plate in warm water for a few seconds
