  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 drops red liquid food coloring

  2. Beat whipping cream until foamy; gradually add powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Stir in vanilla and food coloring.
  3. Remove ice cream from bowls, and remove foil. Place ice-cream halves together to resemble a ball, and place on a serving plate. Spread with tinted whipped cream to resemble a pumpkin. Place citron on top to resemble a stem. Store in freezer until ready to serve. Serve with chocolate sauce, if desired.
