    Not serving this ice cream pie at Thanksgiving from now on, would be like not serving turkey! I used a ready made graham cracker crust, which I brushed with an egg white and put in the oven for a few minutes to crisp, and then followed the directions. I made a caramel sauce by melting 1 stick of butter over medium heat, adding 1 cup sugar and stirring until a deep golden brown. I added 1 cup whipping cream and whisked until smooth. Delicious!  -  27 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    It's Fall, and I was in the mood for pumpkin pie but wanted something light, and this dessert fit the bill. It is so good--my family loved it! It's creamy and very delicately spiced and still has that wonderful pumpkin flavor. In place of the orange juice, I used maple syrup. To serve I drizzled hershey's new Dulce de Leche syrup over it and the flavor combo was amazing. Thank you for an excellent recipe Nancy--it is a great year-round dessert & would be perfect for Thanksgiving!  -  14 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make this pie now every holiday season. It is the best twist on a standard pumpkin pie that I've ever found. Everyone I know LOVES this pie; and it's so easy too!  -  27 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
