Thanksgiving Recipe: Which ice cream flavor would you use in this pie?

Posted by Turkey Hill Team on November 20th, 2014


Thanksgiving is only one week away (can you believe it?). Pumpkin Pie reigns supreme as the dessert-of-choice on Turkey Day, but if you’re looking for another after-dinner option, you might want to give this Mint Chocolate Chip Oreo Pie a try.

Like the name suggests, the crust is made with crushed Oreo cookies and the filling is made with Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. If you’re not a Mint Chocolate Chip fan, feel free to use whichever ice cream flavor you’d like!
