30 Days of Pumpkin Recipes: Day 3 - Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie 

(This pumpkin ice-cream recipe comes from Spoonful.com!)

Kids will love this wickedly easy-to-make pumpkin ice-cream dessert! You can make this recipe even easier by using one of those ready made graham cracker crusts you buy at the grocery store!)


To Make The Pie Crust:

1 1/2 cups crushed cinnamon-sugar graham crackers (about 12 whole graham crackers)

4 tablespoons melted butter

To Make the Pumpkin Ice-Cream:

1 quart vanilla ice cream

1/3 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1 cup canned pumpkin

Assorted dried fruit (or gummy treats work well too!)


Heat the oven to 350ยบ. In a 9-inch pie plate, mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Crumble the mixture until the butter is evenly distributed. Then press it around the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. Bake for 5 minutes and cool completely.

While you are preheating the oven and preparing the crust, let the ice cream get soft by letting it sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. Combine the softened ice cream with the sugar, spices, and pumpkin in a large bowl.Mix until the pumpkin and spices are evenly distributed through the ice cream.

Spoon (or pour) the pumpkin ice cream into the cooled crust. Cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for several hours or overnight.

Before serving, kids can decorate the pie with raisins, dried fruit, gummies, M&M's, candy corn etc. Let the pie sit at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 8.
