How long does Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie last in the freezer?
When you properly store your pumpkin ice cream pie, you will find it will store for up to three months. Just make sure it is in a freezer-friendly container so that it doesn’t get freezer burned. Then when you get a craving, remove a slice and enjoy.
Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie with Graham Cracker Crust
I wanted to use a graham cracker crust for this pie. Now, if you want a traditional crust, just cook the pie crust alone as directed. Then allow it to completely cool before you move on to the next step in the recipe.
It will give you more of a pumpkin pie flavor, but the graham cracker offers a more cheesecake pie texture to the pumpkin filling.
How to substitute a gingersnap crust for a graham cracker crust
All you have to do is take some gingersnap cookies and place them in a food processor and pulse until they form crumbs. Make sure you have 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups. Then use the sugar and butter just like below to make the crust. It will press into the pan just like the graham crackers.
If you don’t have a food processor, take your cookies and place them in a sealable bag. Then use a rolling pin and roll over the cookies and even gently pat on them to break them up.
The gingersnaps will offer incredible flavor to the pie, and give it a more spiced flavor. If you are a fan of gingersnaps I highly recommend trying this recipe!
