This cherry ice cream pie is a simple summertime sweet treat! If you use frozen cherries, the pie will have a fun purple hue.

Unfortunately, I didn't like it.

Maybe it was the lower quality ice-cream I used? Maybe my freezer was to cold? But this didn't turn out very nice!

There weren't any pie crusts in the super-market at the time, suitable. So my girl friend and I made our own out of crushed up cookies. This was the only nice part of the dish. I used fresh cherries, pitted and quarted them. Added in a cheap ice-cream. Froze it. It turned out rock hard. Took 2 minutes just to hack a peice off. Allowing it to sit out for a while didn't help, as it made the ice-cream not taste nice, and took far to long to soften up. The cherries no longer tasted nice, and were also very hard.

Would have been nicer had I had the ice-cream with the fresh cherries on top, by themselves.

Although, in all honestly, I think this all may have came down to the poor quality ice-cream, and possibly the freezer being to cold, considering how much everyone else seems to have loved it.

Can't think of any.

I agree. The photo looks

I agree. The photo looks great and it is a very easy recipe but I tried this twice and I'm wondering what was left out of the posted recipe. Frozen or canned cherries leave the pie brown, NOT red. Low-fat ice cream leaves the dessert flat. And pink vanilla ice cream from oozing cherry juice? In your dreams. Don't try this last minute and expect the posted photo. One viewer tried strawberries. Well, yeah. But then it's not "cherry"
ice cream is it?

Easy and delicious! Next time I would mix the chocolate chips inside the pie (um, maybe add a few more...) and drizzle with a bit of chocolate sauce after slicing. A keeper!
