      I've made this twice now and apparently have neglected to rate it. It was a hit both times -- and I have a gal waiting on the recipe who had a piece the last time I made it. I did bake the crust in a 350 oven for about 10-12 minutes. I think it makes for a crispier crust. When working with the ice cream, I let each layer freeze before proceeding on to the next one. I think it would be difficult to work layering such soft ice cream on top of each other. I did some variations on the top -- using a cracked up Heath bar one time and some other toffee crisps I had another time. This is a devine dessert and seconds are requested quite often.
