    Absolutely delicious combination of pumpkin flavor and gingersnaps. DO NOT SUBSTITUTE the gingersnaps! Made it even better by using Salted Caramel Icecream instead of Vanilla, topped with walnut pieces, Hersheys caramel syrup, and whipped cream! Next time I may even crush a few extra gingersnaps for the top as well. My family loved it!
