While they are baking begin breaking Pirouette Cookies. You can make these the height of the pan you will use for your ice cream cake. I’m using individual spring form pans.

Step 2: Cutting the Pieces to Fit

After the brownies have cooled slightly, begin cutting pieces to fit a single size spring form pan.  Press lightly into the bottom of the pan.

Generally I enjoy serving individual size desserts that are fast to make.

Adding Details to the Sides

Next lightly press the cookies into the brownie filling the edge and freeze overnight.  Freezing these overnight will also make this very cold so the cookies are frozen into place.

Also, any leftover brownies place into a small food processor to grind.  After grinding them place this in a bowl and let set in the refrigerator overnight.  I also did this because the brownies are fudgy and needed to stiffen.  The next day remove them and they will be stiff.  Don’t be concerned.  Move them around with a spoon slightly and site at room temperature.

Next, I began adding my extra creamy Breyers vanilla ice cream.  Using a drinking glass to press the ice cream slightly to flatten.  Continue this process until the ice cream is filled to the top.

Incidentally if you are using vanila ice cream I highly recommend this version. Delicious!
