“An alternative to traditional pumpkin pie, I found this recipe in Eating Well magazine in December 2007. I've made it as my contribution to my mom's traditional Thanksgiving meal and it was well received! I've used Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) to prepare the pan. A tip for quickly softening the ice cream is to put the container in the microwave on medium-low for 30-60 seconds. The cooking time is the entire prep and freezing time. You can make the crust ahead of time and cover and freeze for up to three days. Enjoy!”
