    1. In a liquidiser or food processor, blend the vanilla biscuits and walnuts into fine crumbs. Transfer to a 23cm quiche dish. Mix in the butter and maple syrup. Using a fork, press firmly and evenly onto the bottom and sides of the dish to create a base. Chill 10 minutes in the freezer.
    2. In a large bowl, blend the vanilla ice cream, pumpkin puree and spices. Spoon into the biscuit base. Smooth top with a spatula. Chill 1 hour in the freezer or until firm.
    3. Before serving pie, place the double cream and caster sugar in a small bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on high speed until peaks form. Spoon into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe around the edge of the pie.
    4. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt margarine and chocolate chips, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Transfer to a small plastic container and chill in the freezer 30 minutes or until firm.
    5. Remove chocolate from container. Using a vegetable peeler or cheese slicer, scrape the chocolate to form small curls. Use the curls to decorate the pie

    I tried out this recipe on 20 of my friends and they all loved it! It took me minutes to make; I doubled the recipe and prepared it in oversized shallow glass bowl. What a stunning presentation. What a hit!  -  13 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
