Line inside collar of pan with remaining cookies (see Cook's Tip). For filling, place mint chocolate chip ice cream in refrigerator 20 minutes to soften. Scoop mint chocolate ice cream onto crust. Carefully spread ice cream evenly over crust using Small Spreader; cover and freeze 1 hour. Place chocolate ice cream in refrigerator 20 minutes before removing cake from freezer; scoop chocolate ice cream over mint ice cream. Carefully spread evenly and return to freezer.

Place cream in chilled Stainless (2-qt./2-L) Mixing Bowl; beat on high speed of electric hand mixer until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar and peppermint extract; continue beating just until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat). Spread cream over chocolate ice cream.

For easier serving, let cake stand at room temperature 15 minutes or until ice cream is slightly softened.
