      Elvis Presley's signature fried peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich inspired the Hunka Hunka Ice Cream Pie.
    Bill Zars

 

24 vanilla wafers

6 peanut butter cream sandwich cookies

6 tablespoons butter, melted

2 ripe bananas, divided

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1 quart vanilla ice cream, softened

cup chopped peanuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In the work bowl of a food processor, combine the wafers and sandwich cookies until they are fine crumbs; you should have about 1 cups. If you have a little more, that's OK.

Put the crumbs into a 9-inch pie plate and pour the melted butter over the crumbs. Use a fork to mix the crumbs until they are moistened, then press the crumbs in an even layer on the bottom and up the sides a bit. Bake 10 minutes, then set aside to cool completely.

In the same food processor bowl, combine 1 bananas and peanut butter until smooth. Add the ice cream and process until well combined. Pour into cooled crust and freeze until firm. Garnish with banana slices and chopped peanuts.

Serves eight.
