Pie filling ideas:

  • Cheesecake
  • Oreos with ice cream
  • pudding
  • fruit and whipped cream

Fill your crust with slightly melted Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream and then re-freeze it. You may need to thaw it out a little before cutting and serving. (I love Dreyer’s 1/2 the fat ice cream, but I seem to eat twice as much!)
