  • 1-1/2 cups gingersnap cookie crumbs (about 30 cookies)
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1-1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • Additional gingersnap cookie crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Combine cookie crumbs, butter and confectioners' sugar; press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-in. pie plate. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a double boiler or metal bowl over simmering water, constantly whisk the maple syrup and egg yolks until mixture reaches 160°. Remove from the heat; beat mixture for 5 minutes or until thickened. Stir in rum.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cream until soft peaks form; fold into maple mixture. Spoon into prepared crust. Cover and freeze 4 hours or until set. Garnish with cookie crumbs if desired.
