Recipe notes

Note: We recommend using the rum as directed because the alcohol content helps to maintain a creamier texture in the frozen pumpkin layer For a decorative effect, use strips or cut outs of parchment paper to create a patterned top before sprinkling the crumbs. Freeze as directed; shake off any loose crumbs before removing the paper.
