Stand Time:

Total Time:

24 bars


  • 2 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup quick-cooking rolled oats

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  • 1 gallon strawberry or peach ice cream

  • 2 cup chopped fresh strawberries or peaches


  1. Chill a large mixing bowl at least 15 minutes.

  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. In a bowl combine flour, oats, brown sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until pieces resemble coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts. Pat lightly into a 13 x 9-inch pan. Bake 15 minutes or until golden. Stir to crumble; let cool.

  3. Remove half the crumbs; set aside. Spread remaining half evenly across bottom of the baking pan. Place ice cream in the chilled bowl; stir to soften. Stir in fruit. Spread evenly over crumbs in pan. Top with reserved crumbs. Cover; freeze 6 hours or until firm. Let stand at room temperature 5 to 10 minutes before cutting.


These bars are so versatile—any fruit-based ice cream flavor could be sandwiched between the crumbly crust. Or omit the fruit and try butter pecan or caramel ice cream.
