Orange Cream Freezer Dessert

With its bold orange taste and cool smooth texture, this appealing ice cream dessert is crowd-pleaser. People who ask me for the recipe can't believe how easy it is to make. Plus, it serves a bunch. -Shannon Caroll Whittier, California

    This was really good but I had to make 1 1/2 times the crust to fill the pan and have some for the topping. One recipe amt. did not cover the cookie sheet. I made one large cookie sheet and besides the crust I used one can of OJ and 1/2 gallon (2 qts.) ice cream. It got raves from everyone.

    You can serve it as soon as it is frozen but it will keep well in the freezer for up to 2 months.

    I have not made the recipe, but I have a question, is it a typo to freeze for 2 months before serving?

    This recipe is delicious but it definitely does not make enough crust. I had use a whole box of crackers per tray. But I went ahead and left the cup of butter and 3/4 sugar the same. It turned out great. Just kind of a pain to make. I kept the ice cream and orange juice the same measurements also. Just make sure and let your ice cream and orange juice thaw out really good.

    This recipe is good. HOWEVER, it does NOT make 2 pans. It only makes one cookie sheet sized pan. Not sure how anyone would get 2 pans out of this. I also only used one can of orange juice concentrate, and the orange taste was perfect. I suggest that NOBODY use 2 cans of juice. I can't even imagine how strong that would taste.

    I made this and it was really bitter????? Followed the recipe exactly....maybe I made a mistake and didn't realize it. Will give it another shot, but am going to taste the filling before I freeze it.
