Peppermint Ice Cream Cake

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes for the holiday season. It has the seasonal taste of peppermint but with the twist of being ice cream. I received this recipe from a dear friend’s mother after she made it several years and it became a much requested item. Enjoy!
