Pumpkin Sp-Ice Cream, Lower in Fat

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Annacia

There's no reason not to enjoy pumpkin ice cream at any time of the year. Spiced lightly with cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, this make-ahead dessert tastes like pumpkin pie; crumbled biscotti adds a crusty crunch. The time given is only for making the custard as chill and freezing times can vary greatly. If you would like to increase the amount of spice fell free to indulge

My household is a little divided on this one. We could taste the sour cream, which we didn't care for, but otherwise the flavor is just like a pumpkin pie. I used gingersnaps instead of biscotti to enchance the spice profile, which worked well. Besides the sour cream, the flavor was good. Makes me want some pumpkin pie!
