We made this recipe in third grade and the teacher sent a copy of the recipe home. I loved it so much I insisted my Mom make it, too. Ever since then it's become a Thanksgiving tradition each year. It has lasted the test of time because now I'm a mother of a third grader and we still make it! The pie requires no baking! And kids love it because it's made of ice cream.

Very easy very good. Would recommend using more pumpkin and less ice cream or more seasoning. Very mild and light. Read More

Oh my goodness! Found this accidentally and I made 4 pies for our Canadian Thanksgiving. They were a hit and I will be making this again but I will not wait for Thanksgiving-- I will be making it more often. Used 1 1/2 cups pumpkin puree instead of 1 cup. Excellent recipe thank you so much. Read More

this pie is an excellent alternative as it saves oven space and can be made WAY ahead of time. i found that it tasted better less sweet more creamy after a couple days in the freezer. big hit even with those who preferred more savory foods. Read More

I made this for my thanksgiving dessert. Eeverybody enjoted it but it seemed like it was missing something. I looked back over the recipe only to realize I forgot to mix the brown sugar in. So I plan on trying this recipe again WITH the brown sugar haha. Read More

This is a great pie and I like to put whipped cream on it when served. Season to your liking if you wish but it met my families varied taste the way it was. Read More

Easy and very tasty! I made it gluten-free by making my own crust using gluten-free cereal instead of graham crackers. It is a hit! Read More
