We couldn't stop eating this dessert at taste testing. It earned our highest rating. The concentrated spicy flavor of pumpkin butter replaces the more traditional canned pumpkin. It's a great make-ahead recipe for the holidays.

1/2 cup chopped pecans
Butter-flavored cooking spray
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 2 cinnamon graham crackers (3 full cracker sheets), crushed (about 1/2 cup)
1 (8-inch) round angel food cake (about 15 ounces), cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 25 slices)
1 (9-ounce) jar country pumpkin butter (such as Dickinson's)

3/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Preparation

Place pecans in a nonstick skillet; coat pecans with cooking spray. Add brown sugar; cook over medium heat 3 minutes or until nuts are toasted and sugar melts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool. Combine sugared pecans and cracker crumbs in a small bowl; toss gently.

Arrange half of angel food cake slices in bottom of a 10-inch springform pan.

Combine pumpkin butter, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice in a small bowl. Place half of pumpkin butter mixture and half of ice cream in a food processor; pulse 12 times or just until blended. Spread pumpkin-ice cream mixture over cake layer in pan, and sprinkle with half of pecan mixture. Top with remaining cake slices; freeze 5 minutes.

Place remaining half of pumpkin butter mixture and remaining half of ice cream in food processor; pulse 12 times or just until blended. Spread pumpkin-ice cream mixture over cake layer in pan, and sprinkle with half of remaining pecan mixture. Cover and freeze 2 hours. Spread whipped topping evenly over cake, and sprinkle with remaining pecan mixture. Cover and freeze 8 hours or until firm. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Run a knife around outside edge of dessert to loosen from pan; remove sides of pan. Drizzle with caramel topping.
