Gingersnap Ice Cream Torte Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I followed the recipe with the small exceptions of using heavy whipping cream with the caramel and adding more pecans. I agree with the suggestion to not bake the crust too long. Use good ice cream. It came out terrific and was finished quickly by a group of adults and kids. It's simple to make, but enough effort to make you feel like you created something.

This recipe was good, but I thought it had way too much caramel. Next time I will only use half as much. The Gingersnap crust was amazing though.

The best thing about this was the way it looked - it looked absolutely scrumptious. But... Maybe I did something wrong...the bottom crust stuck to the pan and was as hard to break as candy - I couldn't cut through it to serve it. The texture of the ice cream was odd with the pudding/milk - it turned icy and the vanilla taste was a little less sophisticated than I was looking for. I probably won't make this again. If I do, I would just use softened vanilla ice cream and not add the pudding. And I would need to figure out how to fix the crust.

I had to give this recipe five stars just because the combination of flavors is SO good! The only change I will make next time is to the baked crust: I will either make it more of a crumbley crust and bake it less time or I will layer some of the ice cream mixture on top of crust before adding a layer of carmel. The crust with carmel frozen to it was a little hard to take a bite of. Even with the crust issues, it still was well received by all, I will definitely make it again!
