This looks wonderful. So what is milky way sauce?

Would it be possible to provide the weight of the amount of ginger snaps used? Thanks!

I had that same question, since I'm using Trader Joes Ginger Snaps, so I looked up the size of the Nabisco Ginger Snaps box. One box of Nabisco Ginger Snaps is 16 oz, so 1/2 the box (what the recipe calls for) would be 8 oz :)

My mom made a frozen pumpkin pie too, back in the 60s. She softened vanilla ice cream and mixed in pumpkin pie mix of some kind -- not sure what it was. It also had a regular crust. Loved it, but the recipe "disappeared" (along with her 2-volume Meta Givens cookbook and all the other family recipes) when my dad and she divorced.

Wondering if this is similar to the pie your mom made... hope it is. The filling sounds like what you're describing. http://www.averiecooks.com/2014/09/pumpkin-ice-cream-pie.html
