Yesterday afternoon (which happens to be the absolute craziest time in my house), Gavin looked at his sister, and said, “Come along Assistant Quinny!” To which she yelled, “OKAY!” and ran after him.

I should back up approximately 5 minutes.

I was washing turkey guts from meatballs off my fingers at the sink when I looked behind me to see Quinn swing this large wooden push toy (like a clackity toy with two wheels and a long stick for toddlers) right at her brother’s head.

I screamed loud enough to kind of lessen her blow, but she still hit him. He, shockingly, seemed somewhat unfazed, and his sister got a timeout. After the timeout, there were hugs, and then “Come along Assistant Quinny!”

I heard him say to her, “Do you know why I get the big book? Because I’m the main character in this story. Let’s go!”

It was hysterical. We went from swinging wooden objects to Assistant Quinny in less than 10 minutes. It doesn’t so much shock me. I mean, Quinn pretty much worships Gavin until she finds a button that she can push, and then she just kind of goes to town on it.

Talk about a love hate relationship.

It’s sort of like the relationship I have with this pie. With it’s chocolate cookie crust, it’s creamy rich ice cream flavor and it’s perfect combination of chocolate and pumpkin, it’s absolutely irresistible. But . . . I must resist! My waistline depends on it!

I based this recipe off of my Triple Chocolate Raspberry Ice Cream Pie, which is maybe the one and only dessert I’ve made for this blog that I ate ALL OF BY MYSELF. (Well, except cocktail recipes, but that goes without saying, no?)  It was that good. This is the fall version of it. Needless to say, I’m getting it out of my house as soon as possible.

Chocolate Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie

  • 1 package of Nestle Tollhouse Ultimates Cookie Dough Dark Chocolate Delights
  • 1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip
  • 1 cup of 100% pumpkin puree
  • 1 14 oz container sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray your 9 inch pie pan with cooking spray.
  2. Gently pull pieces off the cookie dough and press it into the pie pan so it makes an even layer. There are areas that are going to be thing, but that’s okay.
  3. Spray a piece of tin foil with cooking spray and put the cooking spray side down into the pie pan over the dough. Now fill the tin foil with spare change. It will help the cookie dough hold it’s  shape while it bakes.
  4. Bake the pie crust for 18 minutes. Let it cool completely before removing the coins, and then gently pulling back the foil.
  5. Once your crust is cooled, whisk the pumpkin into the cool whip. When it’s fully incorporated, mix in the sweetened condescend milk, and then 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the mixture into the cool crust, and top with 1/4 cup chocolate chips.
  7. Cover your pie with tin foil and place on a level surface inside your freezer overnight.
  8. When you are ready to serve your pie, let it sit out for 10 to 20 minutes before slicing into it.
