Servings: 12 people
  • 1.75 quart your first choice of ice cream
  • 1.75 quart your second choice of ice cream
  • 1 package lady fingers
  • toppings - cookies, candy, fruit, etc.
  1. Crush or chop up your toppings.  Depending on what you are using, you may want to use a gallon size plastic bag to help contain the mess.  

  2. Line the sides of a 9 inch springform pan with the package of lady fingers.

  3. Add 3/4 container of one flavor of ice cream into the springform pan.  Using a wet ice cream scoop or large spoon, pack the first layer of ice cream down until the pan is about halfway full of ice cream. Smooth out the top. 

  4. Cover the first layer of ice cream with half of the cookie/candy/fruit topping. 

  5. Add 3/4 container of the second flavor of ice cream on the toppings.  Pack the ice cream down until the top is flush with the top of the springform pan and smooth out.  

  6. Cover the second layer of ice cream with the remaining cookie/candy/fruit topping.  

  7. Serve immediately.  Keep leftovers in the freezer.
