Wow this tastes great!!! I will tell you that due to my being distracted this did not turn out to be the prettiest dessert I've ever made, but it more than made up for it with taste. The spices are perfect and the gingersnap crust just makes the whole thing. Next time I will make sure all my other ingredients are ready before getting the ice cream out because part of my problem was a too melted mixture when it went into the crust, but that is easily remedied and boy is it YUMMY!!
