This pie was always a family favorite at holidays. Everyone thought I'd worked all day to make it, but it's actually so easy to assemble. It's handy to have in the freezer when unexpected company stops in for coffee and dessert. —Arletta Slocum, Venice, Florida

"This was my first attempt at making something for my family's Thanksgiving, after I made two of them and took them down, I found out no one really liked pumpkin pie. So I brought it home and went to work. Got home and found my dad had eaten BOTH of them. So they must have been delicious!"

"At the melting ice cream stage I whisked in a little softened gelatin which helped the ice cream hold its shape after the 15 min defrost stage.

The flavors are awesome. Genius recipe."

"It didn't have a lot of taste. I expected a lot more considering the ingredients and the way it looks. No one at my dinner table was thrilled."

"I'm apologizing in advance because I hate to leave a negative review on this recipe. I REALLY wanted to like it, and anxiously awaited Thanksgiving to make it.

The flavor & consistency were just not what I expected. The pumpkin layer was lacking something, I followed the directions to the T. I'm thinking maybe it was because it wasn't baked and had a raw taste? Also the pumpkin layer thawed way slower than the ice cream so when you tried to get a piece on your fork it was rock hard on top and melting on the bottom. If you do try this recipe I'd recommend using a baked pumpkin pie mixture and a full quart of ice cream will not fit in a 9' deep dish crust and still leave room for the pumpkin layer."

"Yummy and pleasing for the whole family. My husband enjoyed it and now request it every year! I add a teaspoon of almond flavor."
