Pumpkin Ice Cream Dessert


  • 10 whole graham crackers
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 c. pumpkin
  • 1-2 c. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 gal. vanilla ice cream, softened


Crush crackers and mix with the 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Reserve 1/4 cup crumbs and press the rest into a 9″x13″ pan with lid. Chill. Mix remaining sugar, salt, and spices; add pumpkin and mix. Blend with ice cream and spread on top of chilled crumbs. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs and freeze until firm. One cup of pumpkin gives it a light pumpkin taste. Serves 15 people.
