    spatchcock's Note:

    Perfect summer dessert. Try it with chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla for a flavor twist. Cook time=freezer time. Special equipment: a 3 1/2- by 7 1/2-inch (3 1/2-cup) loaf pan

      I didn't have vanilla wafers, so I substituted graham crackers in the crust. It is very good! Very light with a refreshing orange taste. Wonderful summer treat. This is easy to make, and looks really great on a dessert plate. I will make this again. Thanks!

      I posted a slight variant on this recipe (used double layers for a higher presentation), but absolutely loved it! Nice n' light for summer, and elegant enough to serve to a dinner club crowd. I would like to note that some thought the crust a bit odd and chewey, and I think a vanilla wafer crumb crust could work very nicely in this.

      I had also found this on I made it for a small get-together. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it. I really like the vanilla wafer crust. It's something different.
