Wedding & Pie

Cooking

One more week of work!!!! So pumped to be on summer vacation so I can dream about wedding details!

Did I mention we have a wedding date, because we have a date! June 1, 2013 – I will be a bride (knock on wood). That’s tomorrow! Matt’s browsing coral bow ties as we speak:) I’m thinking of trying on some dresses in a few weeks (just for fun). Next on my to-do list is picking out save-the-dates and making a guest list. And deciding on bridesmaids will be the most difficult task of all: / How do you only pick some friends but not others? I love them all! I used to think I wanted a huge urban wedding, but as I experience friends’ weddings and life gets busier, I’m actually hoping for something smaller. Not casual per se, just more relaxed. Matt and I both love Bald Head Island and we’ve decided that it would be the perfect place for an elegant and breezy wedding weekend! I hope everything works out!

Speaking of the beach, Kath promised my ice cream pie recipe and I’ve had several requests, so here it is!

Ice Cream Pie:

-Crush 24 Oreos (or Joe’s Joes) in a plastic bag with something hard or use a food processor – they don’t have to be very fine because the bigger chunks of cookie taste great!

-Mix crushed cookies with 1/4 cup melted butter until well combined

-Press mixture into a pie pan using the back of a spoon and let harden in freezer (30 minutes minimum) or fridge (1 hour)

-Spread one carton of ice cream into pie crust. Note: it’s best to let the ice cream sit out for a while or make the pie when you get home from the grocery store and the ice cream has softened enough to spread

-Put pie back in freezer for at least an hour

-Serve with whipped cream, cherries, butterscotch, and chocolate syrup!

    oh my that pie looks heavenly!! I would probably eat that until I felt sick – looks like one of those desserts you just can’t stop eating! 🙂

    Although I am not yet engaged, going to weddings has made me think about the bridesmaids dilemma. One alternative to having a ton of bridesmaids is to have “guests of honor” who may be listed on the program or wedding website and maybe you give them a special gift or corsage to wear and honor them in some way on your wedding day. That would also give them the freedom of wearing what they want 🙂 just an idea! Yay for a June beach wedding!!!

    Do you put the toppings on just before serving, or do you put it in the freezer for a bit? looks so good. Thinking about doing it either with mint chocolate chip or a chocolate/pb combo

      Either is prob fine. I put mine on before and then added whipped cream!
