So Delicious Ice Cream Cake

This was a birthday cake that was a special, specific order from a special young man… so fantastic and SO easy!

For the crust…

Layer whole cookies on the bottom of a parchment lined springform pan.  You can fill in the spots with pieces of cookies.

A great alternative to an oreo cookie would be Newman-O’s or Late July cookies… if you do choose to use oreo cookies, know that they are in fact dairy-free.

Take out your ‘So Delicious’ vanilla bean non-dairy frozen dessert (or you could use the ‘Cookies ‘n Cream’ flavour and save yourself a step) and let them sit out for about fifteen minutes.  You’ll need approximately four containers for a eight or nine inch pan.

At sixteen minutes, put all of your frozen goodness into a bowl along with one cup of chopped up cookies.

Mix it all together with a hand mixer and pour into your springform pan… just be sure to be a little gentle so that the ‘crust’ doesn’t shift.

Smooth out the top of your cake and place it in the freezer for at least a few hours… or cover and leave overnight.

Top with another cup of chopped cookies and your done!

Options are endless!

We’ll be doing a strawberry version of this this summer… fresh strawberries for the crust, the middle and the top.

OK, we might not make it to the summer…  birthday anyone???  🙂

Note:  You want to let the cake sit out for about ten minutes before removing it from the pan… or if you can’t wait that long, use a hairdryer on low speed and just warm up the outside of the pan.

    oreos have dairy in them don’t they?

  4. Laura Witte says:

    Oreos contain dairy. For a dairy-free alternative try Trader Joe’s “Joe-Joe’s”.

    • Simply Dish says:

      Hi Laura…they actually don’t contain dairy…I even called the company to confirm. 🙂 I certainly think there are healthier alternatives out there, but oreos are dairy-free. 🙂
