Betty demonstrates how to make Orange-Vanilla Frozen Pie. This recipe is from J.M. Hirsch, the food editor for The Associated Press. This pie will remind you of the flavor of Creamsicles!

Ingredients

Vanilla ice cream 1 Pint
Orange sherbet 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Orange soda 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Heavy cream 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Orange extract 1 Teaspoon
Powdered sugar 1 Tablespoon
Zest of orange 1
For graham cracker pie shell
Graham cracker crumbs 1 1/4 Cup (20 tbs)
Sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Melted butter 6 1/2 Tablespoon

Directions

Making

For graham cracker pie shell

Combine all the ingredients and press into a 9-inch pie dish.

Bake at 375 (F) for 7 minutes

Finalizing

In a blender, combine ice cream, sherbet and orange soda. Blend until smooth, stopping the blender and stirring the mixture as needed to ensure it blends evenly. 

Pour the mixture into the pie shell, and transfer to the freezer. Freeze for several hours, or until firm.

Serving

When ready to serve, combine cream, extract and powdered sugar in a large bowl. 

Use an electric mixer to whip on high until the cream holds firm peaks. 

Fold in the orange zest, then mound the whipped cream over the ice cream pie. 

Let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes, or until thawed just enough to easily slice.
