I scream, you scream…

Ice Cream Butterscotch Squares1

and when everyone is screaming for ice cream, it’s  freakin’ fantastic to pull this Ice Cream Butterscotch Dessert out of the freezer!  It’s fast, easy, and nice to have on hand when friends and family unexpectedly stop by.  Weeks ahead, whip up a pan you can share at a potluck or summer dinner party.

Here’s the scoop, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, pecans, and butter in a mixing bowl with a fork or pastry blender.

Separate it into crumbs with a fork,  Sprinkle 1/2 crumbs into a 9×13″ pan.  Drizzle with 8 ounces of butterscotch topping.  Soften ice cream and spread over crumbs.  Sprinkle remaining crumbs over ice cream.  Cover and freeze well.

To serve, drizzle a little butterscotch sauce on each plate, add an ice cream square,  and another drizzle of butterscotch sauce.  If desired, add a shot of whipped cream, top with a cherry, and let the celebration begin!

This recipe can easily be made gluten free by using gluten-free flour.  I recommend King Aurthur Brand.
