Homemade Oreo Crust Ice Cream Cake
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 (1.5 qt) container vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (1.5 qt) container ice cream flavor of your choice, softened
8-ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Anytime up to two weeks before serving, make crumbs from cookies in blender or crush with a rolling pin or meat mallet. Combine crumbs and melted butter, reserving 2/3 cup of crumbs. Firmly press remaining crumbs over bottom and up sides of a 10-inch springform pan. Freeze until firm (15 minutes).Remove from freezer and spread vanilla ice cream in an even layer. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Return to freezer until ice cream is firm
Spread on the second container of ice cream. Cover top with plastic wrap and then foil and freeze. Early on serving day put serving plate in freezer to chill. Ten minutes before serving, invert pan onto plate, release catch, and remove sides and bottom.
If you plan on frosting the ice cream cake, spread on the thawed whipped topping and decorate as desired. This can be done before freezing or just before serving.
