  • 1 refrigerated prepared pie crust Pillsbury brand are my personal favorite
  • 2 tbsp. butter melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice


  • Tear off marble-sized pieces of pie crust, and roll into small pebbles.
  • Combine pie crust pebbles and butter in a small bowl, tossing to coat.
  • In another small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon.
  • Add pie crust pebbles to cinnamon-sugar mixture, tossing to coat.
  • Spread the pie crust pebbles out on a small baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until they are lightly browned on the bottom.
  • Stir them around to rotate a little, and return to oven for 1 minute.
  • Remove from oven, and cool completely -- cooling on the baking sheet is fine.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  • In another large bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream and cooled pie crust pebbles into the pumpkin mixture until mostly combined. You can leave a few streaks if you'd like, or combine entirely -- up to you. But don't overmix such that the whipped cream deflates.
  • Pour mixture into a chilled 9x5-inch loaf pan or a similar size pan of any shape!
  • Cover with foil or plastic wrap, and freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
  • Serve!
