Oh my.... Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie!!! (Gooseberry Patch Recipe #9)

I know they say save the best for last, but this #9 recipe could not wait another moment to be made, eaten and now shared with all of you.  It is fall and pumpkins are a craving most people have this time of year, especially Ott, E.  I was not surprised when he picked this recipe out of Gooseberry Patch's "Homemade Christmas" Cookbook. 

I will admit this dessert is sure to enhance your usual pumpkin pie.  The ice cream combines perfectly with the pumpkin and spices to create a great tasting dessert.  You'll want to be sure and serve this Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie at your Thanksgiving feast this year.  That's right... ice cream and pumpkin.... together!!!

15 oz can pumpkin
2/3 c. brown sugar, packed
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
2 pints vanilla ice cream
9 inch graham cracker crust, frozen
Optional: Whipped cream, butterscotch sauce

 Directions: Stir pumpkin, brown sugar and spices together in a saucepan over low heat.  cook and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture thickens.  Refrigerate until cool (about 2 hours).  Soften 2 pints of ice cream and blend with pumpkin mixture: spread evenly into crust.  Cover; freeze at least 2 hours.  At service time, let pie stand for a few minutes at room temperature before slicing.

If desired sever with Butterscotch Sauce and whipped cream.
Butterscotch Sauce: 1/4 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar, packed 1 cup whipping cream.  In a small sauce pan over low heat, melt butter.  Stir in brown sugar until dissolved.  Add cream and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, cool.  Refrigerate in a covered container.
Next week I will share my last recipe out of Gooseberry Patch's Homemade Christmas Cook and then I will be giving away a copy of the book to one of you!  Be sure to come back next week for the final recipe and your chance to win!!!!!

I made pumpkin pie ice cream last year, and this would be awesome to put it in a shell. What a cool idea. I will try this recipe out this season!

I love this idea! Pumpkin pie isn't my favorite, but I'm sure I would devour this. Ice cream makes everything better.

There's an ice cream place here in Winnipeg that apparently sells pumpkin ice cream every fall but I've never tried it. This recipe looks great. I also posted a pumpkin recipe on my blog today. It's pumpkin muffins. Check it out.
