Simply Sweet Holiday Dessert (NAPSA) - When your house is filled with holiday guests, make entertaining easy as pie. Whip up a quick-start dessert to make celebrations more festive.
For ice cream with half the fat and one-third fewer calories, use rich and creamy Dreyer's/ Edy's Slow Churned Light Peppermint Ice Cream.
Prep time: 15 minutes
In a food processor, crush cookies into fine crumbs. In a mixing bowl, stir together cookie crumbs and butter. With your fingers, gently press the crumb mixture evenly onto the bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate. Place pie in the freezer for about 15 minutes or until firm.*
Meanwhile, transfer the ice cream from the freezer to the refrigerator for about 15 minutes to soften. Scoop ice cream into the crust and spread evenly with a spatula. Pipe or spoon whipped topping around the border of the pie. Place pie in the freezer for several hours or until ice cream is firm.
To serve, cut into 8 wedges and place each wedge on a dessert plate. Optional serving tip: Drizzle wedges with chocolate sauce.
* Store-bought chocolate cookie crust may be substituted.

Line muffin tins with 18 paper muffin cups. Prepare cake batter according to package directions; spoon into muffin cups.
Bake at 350 F for about 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcakes comes out clean. Cool completely.
Cut off tops of cupcakes. With a small spatula, spread the frosting on the cupcake tops; decorate with sprinkles. Using a spoon, scoop out the insides of the cupcake bottoms to form empty shells.
