"This review only gets 3 stars from me because it got so hard in the freezer that we could barely eat it. I loved the flavor and it is like eating frozen pumpkin pie. However, I didn't realize that by leaving in the freezer for several hours it would harden so much - not like normal ice cream (guessing bc of the high content of pumpkin). I have it sitting on the counter right now, thawing it out. I can't even scoop it from the container. Again - the flavor is very good, but if you make it, check it frequently in the freezer so you get the desired consistency."
"yummmm. i used all 1/2 and 1/2 since i had no cream. Next time, I'll cut the sugar down a bit. thanks for posting, I'll definitely make this again."
"Terrific ice cream. I had no half-and-half in the fridge so had to use skim milk instead, but it still tastes delicious. I generally add a half teaspoon of xanthan gum (health food aisle at the grocery store) to all my ice creams before putting them in the machine, and it does wonders for the texture and scoopability. I also always use Splenda instead of sugar with great success. This is a very yummy pumpkin ice cream and will definitely stay in our rotation. Thanks, Sue."
"For the people who had issues with the texture -- I learned a trick from another recipe.<br/>Pumpkin can be grainy, so you can strain the mixture through a sieve before you put it in the ice-cream maker. I added a pinch of salt and 2 teaspoons of Grand Marnier, and it was fine.<br/>I served it with toffee bar cookies."
"I'm not sure if the recipe amount for the cream and half n half are correct. I followed the directions with no changes. The texture was weird and is was not creamy like ice cream should be."
"We used 1/4 c white sugar and 1/4 c brown sugar, and I reversed the proportions on the dairy (1 c half-and-half with 2/3 c cream) to reduce the fat a LITTLE bit. It was... good, but not great. I think it may have had a touch too much ginger and not enough cinnamon for me. We used it as the filling for recipe #266245."
"Made this recipe this morning out in the garage since it's so stinkin' cold out there! Turned out perfect. I doubled the recipe with no problems. I'm going to make some crunchy gingersnap cookies to crumble over it and we'll have it for dessert tonight. Two of my sons already taste-tested it and they loved it! Thanks for posting.
Update: I made Recipe #433013 to go with the pumpkin ice cream and they are YUM!"
"This recipe is about the same as the one that came with my Cuisinart ice cream maker. It's really good and refreshing. I add graham crackers to mine. Tastes just like a pumpkin pie!"
"What a terrific recipe! This is like eating a frozen pumpkin pie. I used 1 cup of light vanilla soymilk and 2/3 cup of skim milk, because that was what I had on hand and I couldn't wait to try it. I tasted the mix after adding 1/3 cup of sugar and that was sweet enough for us. With these changes, I really made pumpkin ice milk, but it was delicious. Next time I will use all soymilk for a creamier taste. We loved it."
"This ice cream was great! Very easy to make and tasted just like a pumpkin pie filling. Next time we would add chunks of graham crackers to the ice cream. Yum!"
"The best ice cream I've ever made!! Unbelievable."
"Our 6 year old told me 3 times while I was making this that he did not like pumpkin ice cream, but when it was finished we talked him into giving it a try and he changed his mind and even asked for seconds. :) A great and easy recipe, my sweetie loves it, will make it again for thanksgiving diner."
"My family loved this as part of our Thanksgiving dessert. It has a very rich, intense flavor which paired nicely with a warm praline topping!"
"Loved it!!! Tasted just like pumpkin pie but as a rich and creamy ice cream. We sprinkled a little graham cracker crumbs on top too. This was a great dessert to pre-mix and then just throw in the ice cream maker while we were cleaning up dinner dishes. Thanks, Sue!!!"
"Very yummy, and very easy to make! This will be our dessert this Thanksgiving ... we'll be serving it with gingerbread cookies. I made certain to use my high-quality Penzey's spices, rather than standard supermarket spices -- I think it made a huge difference. This was very rich and flavorful -- just terrific. Thanks for posting it!"
"This was a fun treat!! :) I don't like pumpkin pie but this was great! Thanks for posting, Sue L!"
"I made this recipe just the other day and it was delicious! I spread it in a premade graham cracker pie crust to make an ice cream pie and then placed a dollop of cool whip on top. It was soo good and everyone loved it!"
"Tastes just like pumkin pie!"
"This is really good - a nice, easy recipe and definitely better than anything you'd get at the store! The spices give it a nice "pumpkin pie" flavor. I didn't serve it with praline topping, but at my husband's suggestion, mixed in some graham cracker crumbs to make it even more reminiscent of pumpkin pie."
