Making a Creamsicle pie is easy as, well, pie. You simple blend barely-softened vanilla ice cream with orange juice concentrate. Pile it all in to a ready-made crust (graham or your own pie dough pie crust) and freeze a few hours until firm enough to slice. Garnish with whipped cream and some orange slices, and be transported back to the taste you loved as a kid.
1 quart good-quality vanilla ice cream, softened but just barely (Philly Vanilla if you're near a Stewart's)
6 ounces frozen orange juice concentrate, melted
1 ready-made pie crust (graham cracker or your own). Freeze for 10 minutes while you prepare filling, so it's cold when you're ready to fill it.
In large mixer bowl, blend softened vanilla ice cream and melted orange juice concentrate. Mix until blended well but not melted. Pile into cold pie crust and swirl to make a pretty design. Place in freezer and let freeze until firm enough to slice, at least a few hours (4-5).
When ready to serve, remove from freezer. Let stand for about five minutes. Slice and garnish with whipped cream and some fresh slices of orange.
