Pumpkin Ice cream Dessert

My mom made this for us a few Sundays ago and it is heavenly! If you are having people over and need a yummy dessert-you gotta try this.

9X13 pan
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream
1 small can pumpkin
1 C. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. each-nutmeg, ginger and ground cloves
30 vanilla wafers and 30 ginger snaps crushed
1/2 C. chopped pecans
1/4 C. melted butter

Set out vanilla ice cream to soften.

Mix butter, cookies and nuts. Press half of the mix into a 9X13 pan and reserve the rest for the topping.

Mix spices, sugar and pumpkin together and add to the softened ice cream. Spoon into 9X13 pan and sprinkle the remaining topping on top and freeze for several hours.
