Redskin Pie

Redskin Spanish Peanuts that is. Need a delicious and different dessert for Memorial Day? This dessert was first served to us by Himself’s Mom and wow! we all loved it. She said I could use any chocolate sauce that I liked but I made one up especially for this pie. Also doubled the recipe so that it would feed a big group. Might be a good one to make when our Redskins get to the Super Bowl…in 2031. Hahahahaha.

Did you know that the Redskins have a fight song? It goes like this…

“Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory! Braves on the warpath Fight for old D.C.!

Run or pass and score We want a lot more Beat ’em, swamp ’em, touchdown Let the points soar Fight on, fight on ‘Till you have won Sons of Washington! Rah! Rah! Rah!

Hail to the Redskins! Hail Victory! Braves on the warpath Fight for old D.C.!”

Himself’s business partner’s son Doug, a coach and school teacher, sang that song to our son Deven who was 6 years old at the time.
“Deven do you like the fight song?”
Deven said, “No, it has a bad word in it.”
Doug had to think about it and said, “No, the word is hail, not hell!”
“Oh then I like the song,” smirked Deven.

Redskin Pie
1 pound package Nutter Butter Cookies
4 T. butter, melted

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
2 cups salted Spanish Redskin Peanuts

2 cups whipping cream
1 T. powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
8.5 ounce can cream of coconut
4 one ounce squares unsweetened baking chocolate

Place Nutter Butters into a large ziptop bag and crush into a fine crumb with a rolling pin. Pour crumbs in a bowl and mix with melted butter. Press crumb mixture into a 9×13 inch glass baking dish. Set aside. Spread softened ice cream over pressed crumbs. (I beat the ice cream in my KA mixer to get soft.) Sprinkle the peanuts evenly over the ice cream, freeze until firm, at least 4 hours. Meanwhile, whip cream, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl until very thick. Refrigerate until ready to use. Just before serving time, make fudge sauce, over low heat, by heating and stirring sweetened condensed milk, cream of coconut, and chocolate until smooth. To serve, plate a piece of pie and top with fudge sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 12-15.

Note- If you would like you can also frost the pie with the whipped cream then freeze, either way!

Enjoy your Memorial Day. Never Forget.

    If that isn't a crowd pleasing pie, then I don't know what is. Fantastic! Your pictures are really great.

    Spanish peanuts are my favorite. This is totally yummy.

    Kids are a hoot. My son's friend asked me why nurses aren't allowed to take some medicines. You know the med commercials always say "if you're pregnant or nursing…" Oh, it was so cute.

    Anyway – thanks for a great recipe!

    Peanut butter isn't my thing, but it certainly is a pretty pie! Oh, what the hail, I could probably eat a piece. 😉

    Looks great definitely perfect for all the hot hot weather we've been having in between the torrential rain! 🙂

    You really didn't say much about your fudge sauce. Looks interesting with a can of coconut cream in it.

    Ingrid- The sauce is rich with a hint of coconut. I usually make the sauce with se con milk and SEMI sweet baking squares but I wanted this one dark with that touch of coconut. Great with the peanuts.

    Karen- Yeah, to hail with it and have a piece.

    I love this! It is so different. I love how kids' minds work. My 4 year old granddaughter Rachel was exasperated one day and she asked for something and my SIL said "Can you say please" and Rachel said "I'm all out of pleases Mommy."

    I might have just shorted out my keyboard by drooling on my laptop! What a delicious looking pie!!

    And that's a cute story about the fight song. My dad's a University of Texas grad and he taught us the fight song, which also had the word "hail" in it. My sister and I always thought it was fun to sing a song that sounded like it had a bad word in it!

    This sounds amazing…but I don't like coconut so what would you recommend substituting the cream of coconut (which I've actually never even heard of) with?
