This was the signature dessert from a local steak house, that, unfortunately, was torn down to become the parking lot for a Wegmans. Really good!
John’s Flaming Hearth Pumpkin Ice Cream Pie
1 baked deep 9-inch pie shell
1 quart vanilla ice cream
1 cup cooked pumpkin
¾ cup granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ginger
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup heavy cream
Spread ice cream in pie shell. Place in freezer until firm. Blend pumpkin, sugar, salt and spice. Whip cream until stiff and fold into pumpkin mixture.
Spoon pumpkin mixture over ice cream and replace in freezer until ready to use. When serving, cover with additional whipped cream if desired.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. dark Karo syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Bring sugar, water, and Karo syrup to a boil.
Simmer until slightly thickened.
Cool slightly and stir in vanilla.
Remove frozen pie from freezer approx. 15 minutes before serving. This will make it easier to cut and serve.
Have Hard Sauce warm and drizzle generously over slices.
