Dan's Favorite Lemonade Cake

I kid you not...when you take your first bite of this, your taste buds will be very confused.  And then they will be sent straight to heaven.  Especially if you have it on a hot summer night.  The combination of sweet and tart is amazing.  
This is a Olsen family favorite!

Dan's Favorite Lemonade Cake

1 1/2  pkgs Keebler Pecan Sandies
1/2 - 1 stick butter

 Put cookies and softened butter in KitchenAid mixer.  Mix well until cookies are crushed and ingredients are well blended.  You don't want this too buttery OR too dry.

Pat into bottom of 9 x 13 pyrex dish.   Use fingertips to spread evenly and press down gently.

1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
1 can pink lemonade concentrate

Mix together in a KitchenAid Mixer or large bowl by hand.  Pour over top of cookie crust mixture and spread evenly.  
Freeze to harden, at least one hour.

Set out a few minutes prior to serving so that it's easy to cut.  
Serve and enjoy!
