You have to understand how much I love ice cream cake to fully appreciate the significance of that title. This pie is as beautiful as it is delicious, and there’s plenty of time to get some laundry done while it’s chilling in your freezer. How proud will your folks be when they hear that you made a pie and did your laundry, on the same day?

To make the spreading steps easier, leave the next flavor of sherbet out to soften while the layer before it is chilling in the freezer. Soft Sherbet = smooth layers. Oh, and run your knife under hot water to cut perfect pointy slices with ease.
